I'm going snowboarding and want to bring sandwiches with me on the slopes! Typical. Caveat: must be vegan, and must appeal to non-vegans. I'm also not a fan of sweet sandwiches, like PB&J. Suggestions? [more inside]
Kamchatka. This place looks amazing, particularly from the snowboard touring/heliboarding angle, combined with some of my favorite things - Volcanos! Bears! Remote wilderness! Hot springs! Have you been there? Got any advice? Tell me your story - logistics? Budget/cost of travel? Best time for great snow? Reputable heli/guide company? Is there a time of the year when you can both hike and tour? Generally speaking, I want this combined with this if it is possible. Help a Siberia newb with no language skills start to plan an adventure? Thanks in advance!
Which ski resorts in Eastern Austria would one recommend? It seems the majority of recommended Austrian ski resorts are on the Western side of the country. However, we're traveling by car from Budapest, and in our wish to keep the drive under four hours, wish to stick with Eastern Austria. Flying is not an option. Also, with English-instruction on learning how to snowboard would be a plus. One of us is very well versed with skiing resources in France, but when it comes to Austria we are clueless! [more inside]

I'm looking for gift ideas for a family member who is into snowboarding. He already has all the basics but I do know he needs a new pair of goggles (which shouldn't be hard to find). I'm also interested in any cool accessories that you could recommend beyond the basic stuff your average snowboarder would have. The price range I'm looking for is around $50. Thanks in advance!

I'm taking a snowboarding trip to Wyoming this winter break and I will be using a plane at least three times during this period. Naturally, I will be carrying a snowboard and all my other equipment on the plane. How should I go about protecting my board? Should I just use a soft case to protect from scratches or should I be more concerned? Also, are there any products anyone can specifically recommend?
Horribly specific somewhat-old videogame question: Is SSX3 on the Playstn2 really that much better than SSX Tricky? Specifically, is SSX Tricky worth keeping for the courses or should I just chunk it in exchange for SSX3. I have come in late to owning a PS2 (just got the new model as a gift) and picked up SSX Tricky, looking for a 1080 fix. But then I find out I have the older version of the game, and that the current installment makes the version I have obsolete. Snowboarding nerds, please advise. I want SSX3 but basically don't know if I should trade in SSX Tricky for it, or keep the older version, too. Thanks! [more inside]
