So not to confuse the poor kid......wear waterproof pants, you can def spot some at marshalls or dicks, anywhere they sell ski or board equip will have low end to high end gear. since you're starting, I recommend low end...when I started in 02 I had a Lamar board with jnco pants!! all the season vets know what Im talking about!!!
Def do not try and go up in jeans or sweats, you and ur girl will be misearble, since most of the time you will find yourself on the snow...snow+non waterproof gear= 0 fun! If you want to figure that out for yourself...enjoy, but I dont reccomend it once again.
I also agree with the thick socks, some of those rental boots may not be as warm as you'd like, also a warm pair of gloves is a must
I just got those pants =P. The boots that they were talking about were confusing me hahaha i thought i had to wear my own stuff like timberlans hahahaha i didnt know it wa boots fitted for the board hahaha like bowling shoes
i know your supposed to dress in layers whats the middle layer again? i was gonna put on sweats under my water proof pants but that seems like a bad idea.
