Oy, what's up?

Hey, I just dropped in here today. Don't know if I'll be posting too much. I'm going snowboarding for the first time in February. I live in the UK, American military, and I'm heading to Interlaken, Switzerland for a couple day of snowboarding and ice climbing.

I just found this forum because I need some questions answered about some gear I need.

I still need a pair of snowboarding pants, and a pair of gloves. I'm looking mainly at the TNF Freedom snow pants, I have a TNF jacket that I'm really happy with. It's also made of their HyVent fabric, and I've been very impressed with it. I own several GTX jackets as well, but I like my TNF jacket the best. So I figure I'd start looking for pants with them as well.

I have no idea about gloves though. I don't even know what kind of gloves are appropriate for snowboarding.

Yo man what kind of board will you have? I would think so long as you have a decent amount of layers on, you will be good. As for gloves, I would just find something that is relatively tough. Anything will do so long as it can take a little bit of a beating and is warm.

You are in the military? I was in the Marines not so long ago.. Hope you have fun in Schweiz!
