going to mammoth
hii, I´m a brazillian and I´m going to LA in february and then I will go to mammoth resort to snowboard for the first time ( I´m a wakeboarder) and because I pretend to snowboard more times I´m planning to buy the whole equipament, but I dont want to spend a whole lot of money, so guys , can u guys can reccomend to me a snowboard outlet near LA or mammoth. should I buy in the internet( I dont know nothing about snowboard yet), should I buy on a snowboard outlet or should I buy in mammoth (there are used boards there?) ?
I want a good snowboard and boot so I dont have to change it when I get good, but I dont want to spend a lot of money! btw should I buy the lift tickets online? there is any kind of promotion ( I´m going with my family-5persons, and staying 6 days) and 3 of them are students(in brazil) is there any discount for students?
