Yeah, new snowboarding gear this season is probably out. Especially since she wants to start up. Probably gonna be grabbing her a used board and bindings as soon as the fall CL market gets cranking. Got her a pair of boots on clearance a couple weeks ago.
I managed to get my wife into boarding. The first day torture was endured like a champ. She enjoys it now, but we are at such different levels we don't really board together. Maybe 1 run a day, but when there is sweet pow to be had (most days here) I can't bring myself to spend time on easy groomed slopes. Luckily for me she in pretty independent and is cool with that. She is improving fast and maybe next year we could do more together.
