Renting is also an option, although i wouldn't rent from the mountain unless you know they have decent gear. I never really liked the gear(or 30+ minute lines to rent) at Mt Hood Meadows out here, it was never very comfortable nor setup right looking back.
Best bet, at least out here is to rent at one of the ski/snowboard shops on the way up to the mountain, usually cheaper for better gear. They may have something like that out there...
If you need cheap though, i would get the low end of one of the better board makers. Or look on ebay/craigslist in your local area, i know out here in Oregon you can get some sick deals. Like 3-4 year old boards that were higher end boards selling for under $200...they wont have all the latest advances...but only a few years ago they were considered to be the best and would be more than adequate for starting...
You'd be surprised the deals you can find on craigslist some times, people having to move, pay bills they cant afford and are willing to sell their toys at ridiculous prices to get cash..
