Default First boots

Hey guys,
I'm going to killington in the end of this year and im thinking in buy my own boots and let the other things like snowboard and bindings for when I know what I like. Cause most of people says that boots are the most important part of the equipments. What do you think, should I buy my own boots or rent it?
Thanks.

Depends on your preferences, but I recommend to buy medium. Unless you're sure you will be riding mostly park.

Won't broke in first few years maybe you should rent for a few times, maybe you won't like snowboarding, who knows. Try it and then put money in it.

Try a comfortable pair of speed lace boots. Inexpensive pair.

Use them till you find your style and go from there.


Burton Moto is a decent starter boot.
