On average, a person burns between 310 – 548 calories per hour while snowboarding. The exact number of calories burned depends on the level of intensity of your snowboarding session as well as your weight and metabolism.
Here is a chart to help give you an estimate for how many calories your burn per hour.

Can I Get a More Accurate Estimate of Calories Burned While Snowboard?
Yes. You can use a heart rate monitor while you snowboard. A heart rate monitor is one of the best ways to measure how many calories you burn in one hour of riding. When you measure your own heart rate, you can see how much effort it takes you to ride your favorite terrain in one hour. The effort you put in while riding, determines the calories you actually burn.
I recommend using the heart rate features on the Suunto9 Baro Sport Watch while you snowboard to get an accurate estimate of your heart rate. You can also use it to track your runs and the distance you’ve traveled.
