White gear is the worst color you could buy for a number of reasons. First of all if you ride with friends and it is snowing moderately to heavy you will be much harder for your friends to see and other riders. Obviously it also shows dirt much more. This may or may not be a problem depending on your riding. If you like to ride through tight glades and you are clipping small branches and twigs those scratches will show up on your white coat. I have a full suit of white and black gear and the white parts looks like shit. I'm sure if you took good enough care of your coat you could avoid these things but personally I don't recommend the color. I usually end up crashing out a bunch of times when trying a new rail or box trick. Depending on the condition of the rail, and how you fall on it, you can end up with some pretty bad dirt/rust/paint marks on your outerwear.
