if it is your first time going...just take your boots and rent a proper sized board....but more importantly get a lesson. At baker you can get a board/bindings/lesson and a chair 2 pass for $50...a beginner package.
Really its not the gear....its the rider...or at least the rider's attitude and skill. You got the most important piece of equipment....boots. Get a helmet and some lessons...SPEND THE $ ON LESSONS...not gear since u have never gone. Ur in the pnw....there are tons of folks with extra gear...just ask around or CL.
