Mountains are a place where many extreme sports take place. These sports are often associated with extreme contextual factors, such as altitude or speed, and the equipment is typically of high quality, high performance, and high cost. However, gear in this domain typically has a low level of information and communications technology integration. Yet, there are possibilities to develop new features that would provide the user more information, increased safety or a richer user experience. In this paper, we describe a concept design to enhance snowboarding gear, where a LED based display on the snowboard is used to communicate the speed of the ride to the user.
