What equipment to buy?

Hi.

I am going to Winter Park Colorado for Spring Break and I am buying all the equipment online (I know my size already).

I was wondering if I should get the shoes and bindings also, or just the shoes or neither. I am not going be buying a snowboard. I will be renting one instead. What do you guys think? (This is my first time snowboarding).

they arent going to let you just rent a board, so theres no reason getting bindings...

Rent first, honestly. A beginner can't tell the difference between a top shelf board and a rental shit-stick. There are hundreds of very expensive 'Used once.' snowboard setups on Ebay every season, for a reason.

And I'm very jealous that you're going to Colorado.

Buy new boots, Rent everything else. I agree with M spunk on this one. Rental board should be soft soft soft. Burton LTR if thats still around have beginner boards that are soft and have the base edges beveled a few degrees.

Good luck oneplankjonger.

LTR: learn to ride system

boots that fit the best. forget about brand color trends bullshit or buying online.
