New to everything snow!
Im new to this forum so i would like to say g'day to everyone.
This forum came up on my searches a few time about getting prepared for my first serious trip to the snow.
I have been before, although it was just in Melbourne, but was pretty much just a party trip with mates.
Myself and my partner are hoping to and have been meaning to get into snowboarding for a long time. But it was always a case of money and time.
We are now over those hurdles and am very serious about getting out there and travelling and learning to board.
I have a few questions as I'm sure a lot of people do. I have read a lot of info before posting on this forum, but you get a lot of mixed information.
We are looking at heading to Japan in Feb. We have no gear what so ever and am looking at buying it all soon.
Pretty much wanting to find out
1. What boots and bindings should we be looking at getting for beginners? And do all binding fit all boots? or are they matched?
2. Should we buy our own boards, and if so how do we work out what size we need.
3. What are the better brands of clothing to buy? e.g Pants, jackets, thermals and so on.
All information would be very helpful
and i look forward to the chats and fun having now joined the forum
