I want to take snowboarding footage with the HVX200,


What can you suggest that would keep it from freezing??? Or does it not really matter

It shouldn't matter. I've had the camera in pretty cold climates doing skiing and such and it performed great. I know that they used these cameras when they first came out for sled dog racing in very cold climates. In very hot weather where the camera is fixed I tend to keep it covered to avoid getting too hot.

The low temperatures will effect the battery life. Expect a loss of efficiency of around 20%, could be less or more depending upon how you store the batteries on the day.
After the camera has been exposed to the cold for a length of time,be careful about bringing it into warm and humid environments (such as crowded restaurants/bars, hotel rooms), condensation will form around switch gear and could conceivably get into the camera and cause issues due to corrosion at a later stage. Condensation on the lens is no fun either.

Imagine if your snowboard is pulled not by gravity, but healthy dogs who might or might not be named Rover, Spot or Fido:
