Smile Newbie going solo

Hi Everyone,
I'm new to this forum and to snowboarding in general.

A few weeks ago I went on my first snowboarding vacation along with my family and it was PERFECT - except for the fact that it only lasted 4 days.
I knew I was absolutely hooked right after my first hour snowboarding.

So now I'm planning to go back to the same site (dolomites) for 2 weeks during March, except this time I couldn't find anyone to join me on such a short notice.

1. For this duration of a trip, and if I'm positive that I will continue snowboarding in the upcoming winters, should I rent a board or buy one? (renting would cost ~150 euro for the duration)

2. Should I buy boots before I consider buying a snowboard?

3. How odd is it for a female to be making such a trip on her own? Snowboarding alone (I will be taking lessons or a group course perhaps) and apres-ski wise... Have you run into other females going solo?

4. From your experience, what level should I expect to be after 2 weeks of snowboarding every day, all day?

Thank you, and I'd appreciate any tips/input.
