Default Snowboarding during Spring Break

Hey guys, I am new to snowboarding and this website. I live in Texas, right now it's my third year in college. For spring break I wana go snowboarding. What are some good places where there will be snow? Also is it better to order equipment online, or buy it at a resort or the location where I will be snowboarding?

Thanks!

If you're buying boots, try em on locally. For everything else do whatever you want. Resort shops are usually more expensive.

I went up to Tremblant in Quebec for last spring break and snow was good. This reading break I'm heading to Whistler for a day trip then again for 3 days haha.

are you talking about buying stuff or renting
if this is your first time or one of your first times i would suggest renting at the hill for a while. make sure you are going to want to keep snowboarding before you buy stuff.
i have seen a lot of people buy a whole bunch of nice stuff before they have even been to a hill and then they decide they dont like snowboarding that much.
