Every serious skier and snowboarder needs a backpack to keep track of all of his stuff. Think: phone, GoPro, water bottle, energy bars, backcountry tools, and extra lenses. The 25-liter Burton Rider's Pack ($90, burton.com) can hold of all that—and more. Internal organization compartments make for easy access, and you can slip your skis or snowboard in the vertical or horizontal carry options if you hike up. Tighten the straps across your chest and stomach before you descend. And don’t forget to toss in your après layers—this eliminates annoying trips back to the condo when all you really want is a beer.
