2001 Best Snowboards

Underground Snowboards

The skate park aura can be intimidating, but you can expect helpful staffers, decent pricing, and one of the widest selections of snowboards, boots, and bindings around. Choose from Ride, K2, Forum, M3, Salomon, and others. Also on offer are gloves, hats, and jackets—though the focus here is more on hardware than soft wear. Staff attention never wavers whether you’re interested in clearance items or the latest models.
