After last year's poor snowfall across the world, snowboarders can’t help but worry about the environment. After all, our 2008 trip's buggered if climate change melts it away.

To see what we could do to green up our favourite past-time, SmartPlanet took a bunch of eco products to Cervinia in the Italian Alps to see if they fare as well in extreme conditions.

First up was the Patagonia men’s baselayer (£32, pictured below) made of 64 per cent recycled polyester. This performed well, keeping us warm in even the coldest conditions -- and it got pretty damn cold at the top of the glacier.
