Easiest bindings (and boots) I have ever had were the burton S.I. series. (S.I. = Step In).
Burton don't make them or the shoes any more, but if you could find a lightly used set, I think they could be good. They were awesome for me when I was a beginner and lasted me about 10 years
Something like this

The 2013 and newer flow bindins that has the LSR ratchets on them are the ones that could be use as a regular binding as necessary. I have tried this on the mountain to see how well it works and they do. Tried it once on a steep slope,and then on a knee deep pow. I have to admit it felt different putting it the traditional way but it sure does work
The Flow Isis and the Minx/ Minx GT would be the one to get if you decide on Flows.

|wrathfuldeity||burton ratchets and ladders are great, bindings perhaps rome madisons....this is just opinion and perhaps a moot point since ur on the wrong coast...but rear entry type bindings don't work in deep snow. Infact got stuck in thigh deep today and flows would have been hellish to get out of.|

For BOA boots, I'd recommend double boa, which allows you to tighten the lower and upper part of the boot separately. There aren't that many boot models that have double boa.
I have laces and they work fine for me, complete control and they don't loosen up during the day usually

|ekb18c||Try a set of burtons, their ratchet set and ladders are like butter. On and off easily.|

|Kenai||The ratchets vary immensely. My wife used to hate her ratchets because they did not release easily (some cheap pair I bought her) but she now loves her Burton Cartels because they slide right off even with gloves or mittens. My guess is you will be fine with any non-rental pair, but you will definitely be fine with any non-cheap bindings.|

I have rented Burton ratchet type and did fine.A few times it took me awhile to connect the ankle strap on a few that seemed really stiff. Did NOT like the Head bindings I rented at Crotched Mt. last weekend.
As far as the ratchet type, I cannot seem to do them with gloves/mittens on so I take my stuff off..kind of a pain but...I heard about the Flows but someone said they are crap. On a different note, I loved the Flow boots I tried on..airy light. Want boots with the BOA but still am shopping..
