My general rule is low key colours unless your good. I try to keep my colours cool but not too loud. If you look like a pro with all your swanky bright colours yet your a noob at snowboarding well you just look a prat...

One huge advantage of wearing colors (pro/advanced/intermediate/beginners) it makes you easy to spot. Finding people in your group, or them finding you,is a lot easier when you have colors in your outfit. TBH i think its a good idea for beginners to wear bright colors (kind of like reflectors), so you can spot them easily and avoid them.

BTW when you see a "noob" on the hill w/ that new expensive flashy jacket/pants/boot/board. remember that they might be working people and they deserve to buy what they please with their hard earned money. Maybe they like dressing up for snowboarding more than actually snowboarding
Haters hate usually cause they don't have what they want.
If you see them around just give them props on their gear or keep it to yourself...

Everyone was a "noob" at one point...

I'm not a great snowboarder or anything far from it sorry if my post sounded up my own arse wasn't intentional.

Yeah my friend wears a bright yellow jacket and green and yellow pants and I can always find him so it's useful whereas I just blend in.

I just think if you look the part you should be able to board the part. It's not like I take the piss or anything. Just what I think.
