The Whitelines 100 | Our Pick Of The Best Snowboard Gear For This Winter

The ultimate snowboarding gear guide is live and kicking!

Yep, it’s that time of year again, winter is well and truly settling in over the Northern Hemisphere; the Alps have their first dump of snow, shops are getting stocked up with the latest kit, glaciers across Europe are already kicking things off for the season and most importantly, the Whitelines 100 is live!


This year, we’ve gone further than ever in our pursuit to seek out the best snowboard gear on the market. We’ve spent weeks out in the mountains testing and reviewing kit, long days trawling trade show halls scrutinising the latest products and innovation, and hundreds of hours researching the functionality and originality of both hard and soft goods. As such, we truly believe we’ve compiled a list of this season’s best products, everything from super specific powder cannons to slippers.

As resorts opened back up to international crowds, the Whitelines crew hit the road and headed out to Austrian snow mecca, Flachau, home of the legendary Absolut Park and some of the best terrain on the continent. There we met up with a cherry picked test team of ex-pros, retail staff, park crews, coaches and instructors to put hundreds of products through their paces. While we tested gear, we debated the merits of each, and slowly fine tuned our list of favourites. With our team of creative wizards on hand we filmed video reviews of some of our top picks, which will be dropping on our Youtube channel throughout the season.

There really is something for everyone here, whether you’re a discerning park rat or a freeride fanatic, we’ve got you covered. Splitboarding definitely had its moment in the sun a few seasons back while lifts weren’t turning, but the momentum has certainly kept up, both from brands and consumers. So, if you get your rocks off hitting the skin track, make sure to check out our Splitboard Hub to stay up to date with all the latest uphill chat.

The buck don’t stop with boards, either. We’ve put our best foot forward with in-depth reviews for boots and bindings, and made sure to mix substance with style selecting our favourite jackets and pants, too.

Tech and jargon in the snowboard world can seem to move at warp speed, every year we’re seeing cutting-edge innovation and never-before-seen craziness, so we’ve done our best to break it all down, cut through the marketing fluff and bring you the no-nonsense facts. Established brands and ol’ faithfuls rub shoulders with shiny new toys and the latest gizmos in the Whitelines 100, the only thing that ties them all together is their superb quality and top-of-the-line performance.

As Benjamin Franklin said “In this world, nothing is certain except death, taxes and the Whitelines 100 being the ultimate snowboard gear guide”. No matter if you’re looking for a super specific model to expand your ever-growing quiver or you’re gearing up for your first day sliding sideways, we’re confident that you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Without further ado, saddle up, put your feet up and get ready to nerd out, check out the 2022/23 Whitelines 100 here.
