Depends. If you're going on a week long trip it might be wise to bring along some spare equipment. I've had my gear for 8 years and nothing has ever broken, but I only used it for freeride. I can tell you that next season for the East Coast meet I'll be bringing two sets of goggles (and lenses for different light conditions), at least two sets of gloves, and both my boards (one is freeride, another is all mountain). For my day trips to the local resort I bring a set of screwdrivers and that's it.
