My personal setup is a Burton Custom smalls 145W, I'm looking for new bindings as we speak, and Burton Hail boots. As for goggles, I'm not the guy to ask about that, though helmets are a different story. I'll always be a helmet advocate, I had a nasty run in with a tree my first year out, and thanks to my helmet, I'm okay. I'd recommend the Giro helmets personally.
So far, the Contact's are amazing. They are soooooo comfortable and I don't get ANY calf-bite at all. Union sells them as a park-oriented binding, but you can take them anywhere around the mountain. The ratchets and ladders run smooth, and it's easy to adjust the binding to your own preferences. I would highly reccomend getting a pair of Union Contact bindings.

I have a pair of rogues, they don't fit my face, they are just too narrow, i dont think i have a real wide face. my oakley splice's fit better than anything i have ever had. Like snowklinger said its really based on your head. i got my oakleys on ebay for like 60 bucks.

Get a helmet and wear it. smith, giro, bern, red, k2, all make pretty cool helmets. save your brain
Yeah after looking at some goggles and trying some on with my Pro-Tech helmet I think the Rogue's will do great. Especially when I found a pair at sports authority for $57.

Just a wild guess.
