My first post. First off I have been skiing for 12 years. My gear for that consisted of custom molded Salomon Race boots. K2 Parabolics from 2 years ago and K2 bindings... Forget model. They are stored in my garage. Well I got bored on the skis. One too many bowls and 1 too many deep powder runs and was time to switch. Snowboarding looked fun!
So I rented some gear. They gave me a k2 board/step in bindings/airwalk boots. That was 5 years ago. 1/2 day on bunny hill and I was running blues. This past season I got all Head equipment and my arch was dead and had horrible heel lift and the board sucked and the bindings were either too tight and toes got cold but I could turn on too loose and I couldn't turn but my feet were warm! What to do?
Buy my own stuff... Here is what I got. I am 6ft 200lbs. I would say I am intermediate and I rarely do tricks. If anything a 360 with a grab if I see a jump on a blue or black run. I don't hit pipes or rails etc.
Also Keep in mind I only board resorts. Snowmass is my favorite and I will be there 1 week in December and 1 week in Febuary. Also gonna break down and drive up to North Carolina and try Sugar Mountain. Supposedly it is "decent"

Mountain Hardwear jacket - Didn't need stuff for jackets/pants. I have enough North Face to outfit this forum but I wanted something new
Dakine Heli S Pack - I HOPE this will be comfortable on the lifts
So how do I look? Next year I will upgrade the bindings I think but these were less than 100 shipped and the reviews were all good except one person said they were hard to get latched if it was "really cold"
I take negative and positive equally well!!
Nice to meet you guys and thanks for the input!
