the later you go, the lower the prices, but also the lower the inventory

priority:

boots - if your feet aren't happy, you won't be happy
pants - sitting down, going through waist deep white stuff; if your pants are soaked, you won't be happy; zipvents are practically a must
bindings - cheap bindings are cheap for a reason (inexpensive isn't the same as cheap)
gloves - soaked gloves are not fun
socks - like boots and gloves, a good pair of ski socks will do wonders for comfort and enjoyment
jacket - a cheap 5k jacket will take a lot longer to get soaked than cheap 5k pants
board - anyone can rip on a lamar; the rider makes the board, not the other way around
goggles - these days, any $30 goggles with persimmon lenses will perform equally to $100 goggles with persimmon lenses
