No snow? No problem.
The Backyard Blizzard home snowmaker ($2,995) is capable of blanketing your yard with ankle-deep fluff in a few hours, and runs off a standard garden hose and household power. Use it along with some plastic reindeer for holiday ambience, or covertly plug it in to your neighbor's outlet and blast out a half-pipe overnight. On Christmas morning you'll be ready to commence ripping, but to start out right you'll need this complete snowboard setup from Salomon, Bonfire, Motorola, and Dragon Optical.

Salomon gear: Mavericks helmet ($109), Mandate snowboard ($360), SP6 binding ($250), and Synapse boots ($250). Bonfire: GT Advantage Jacket ($280), GT Progression Pant ($220), Gold Glove ($60) [www.salomonsports.com / 800-225-6850]. Motorola: TalkAbout T6220 two-way radio ($100) [www.motorola.com / 800-353-2729]. Dragon Optical: Liquid Cherry goggle ($70) [www.dragonoptical.com / 800-995-0008].
