Flick Montana It really depends on your price range. I have to say that I personally think Rome Anthem and Design boards are some of the best boards you can get. If you aren't looking to shell out $400 there area lot of good boards that you can buy. I'd say try them out or ask around for people who have used them. (I've only ridden Rome extensively) I can't really say I'm an expert on all the equipment, but I know about the stuff I've used.

Rome Anthem and Design boards are awesome. I got an 05 Anthem last year for $250 and I love it.

Rome Arsenal bindings are great, too. I haven't had any problems and they fit very well.

I have Danny Kass IV boots from Vans (yes, the hideous yellow/red checkers ) and I love them, too. Also, Thirty Two Lashed and BOA boots are fantastic.

I personally think most of the equipment from different manufacturers is pretty equal. I think it's a lot of personal preference. Most companies don't make "bad" boards, just cheaper ones with fewer bells and whistles. As a novice, you probably won't care too much. Try them out at the slopes and see which ones you like!

One final note, avoid letting people tell you what type of board to buy (length, flexibility, width). There is no standard. Just find what you're happy with.

Former Skiier Relocating to Denver

hey there, ally here. originally from CT i'm relocating to the denver area for school. i've been a skiier for most of my life but have had to give it up due to shin and ankle injuries. i'd love to return to the snow and i've been told snowboarding boots might be the trick to a comfortable ride.

i want to learn the sport and i need to start with equipment. i want something that is performance quality, comfortable, and reasonably affordable for a novice setup. bindings, boards, and boot; what should i be looking for? what should i avoid? where should i go to get them? thanks.
