Default Sub for Snowboard pants

Hey what's up everybody. It's Rookie82 here. I'm going snowboarding for the first time on Sunday. I'm going to Canaan Valley. This trip was kinda last minute for me due to financial reason. But now I'm able to go, but I'm a little short on gear. I'm renting a snowboard, bindings, and boots. My friend is letting me use his spare jacket. The only problem is I don't have the money to buy snowboarding pants and snow pants are out of season at all the stores. Is there anything I use instead to keep my butt from freezing? I know I'm going to fall alot. Any cheap suggests?

uhh, never tried this and wouldn't be caught dead in it, but what about some rain slickers, rubber pants or the equivalent with serious layers underneath?

I could of sold you my old board pants for really cheap if could of asked a while back. They've been sitting on a shelf for 5 years. too big for me.

I hope you have really thick skin.

I'd probably knock door to door where ever you live until I found a pair. If you don't wear some type of water proof pants you are going to be miserable. Your friends friends don't have even one spare pair of pants you could borrow? Whatever you do don't wear jeans. And yes I'd agree that your next best bet would be some rain gear and some thick layering.

What size are they? I may want to buy them from you for next season. The thing is that I can't even find any rain pants. It's frustrating. But I'm going to keep looking till sunday morning. Oh yeah, no jeans. That sucks.

Check your local thrift store. Here in Colorado there are always tons of snowpants and jackets. Some might be from the 70's ( and if they are you get bonus steeze points btw...) but they are generally cheap and work fine.

hey, my parents and their friends go to cannan valley every year. its supposed to be real chill and the slopes are always pretty empty. have fun.

good luck finding some pants man. i got a very nice pair for dirt cheap at a local overstock store, check one of those (they were brand name and everything). marshalls, tj maxx, burlington coat factory, and there are lots more, they just differ wherever you live.

i got your solution:
step 1: Get hefty black garbage bag, proceed to cut holes in the bottom.
step 2: Insert legs through these holes, and tie using the handy drawstring.
Step 3: throw on a few layers of cloths.

voila you will be dry! at least your layer under the garbage bag.

Ps just dont let that darn yellow string stick out. wont pick up any cute snowbunnies like that, thats for sure
