ColeWorld Well I bought some boots and a helmet for 220. More than I wanted to spend...they only had a pair for 150 as their cheapest :/. I wanted a pair of DCs for 100 because I heard they are a good rand and they were an awesome color...oh well. Maybe they wouldn't of even fit me well. The pair I got is basically all black.

I think I'll be buying the burton cruzer 155 cm (that's a good enough size for me right?)..as long as the boot fit the binding which I hope they will.

druj I wouldn't go cheap on the boots.. Just get the best boots you can get in your budget (I think you can find a lot of boots on sale) and find a board&binding combo from ebay-craigslist for cheap... Even if it's couple years old, since you're pretty new, you won't feel a lot of difference.. save some money, go ride as much as you can this year and next year, and at the end of next season, get the awesome setup you dream about.. you can probably get a decent setup for $300-$350 everything included which should hold you for this and next season.. before you buy it, you can sell your old setup too for little bit less..

Best advice, Follow this order, as this order is most important.

Boots.
Bindings.
Board.

Your boots will be the singlemost important piece of equipment. If you have heel-lift in your boot, or they dont fit correctly, you'll be doomed well before you hit the mountain
6 hours of driving is some real dedication O.o.

And I did hear that boots were most important. I could buy boots from a store I guess if I buy a snowboard+bindings for only ~100-150 considering that burton cruzer is that cheap and it seems good enough. Although I guess I'd have to see if my boots would then fit te bindings? Although actually I think I can buy just the board from the person and then buy some bindings separately.

I just looked on Craigslist and i found a board for a great price with great reviews...burton cruzer. I am thinking I will look some more but I think I might go with thei one. 155cm board by the way. It sounds great for a noob looking to go down mountains. It's heavy and is just incredibly forgiving.
1.5 hours is nothing man...i'm 3 hours away from my local mountain but yet i still go as much as i can. the ride is a bitch, but gotta feed the addiction right?

with that said, if you're going casual you should spend a little more time actually trying stuff on and buying new. a lot of shops should be starting to get their sales going. paying the extra premimum to make sure everything fits you will save you a lot of potential grief since you don't yet have the luxury of disposable income. at the very least, buy your boots in-store.

spitfire's an old board, just an FYI. though i heard it's pretty good.

where in NY are you from?

ColeWorld Downhill. And that's good because it seems like there are a lot more boards out there that length. There are a lot of good deals on Craigslist it seems so I will probably go that route. I don't know if there are any boards you could recommend me. I saw one for really cheap called the k-2 spitfire so I guess I'll do some research on that.
