Lately i gained a lot of weight during my new job on an office where i spend most of my time sitting. I been exploring new ideas and i always wanted to snowboard. I'm planning on going to snowboarding resort around Dec.15th but i have no helmet, bindings or board. I'm currently 5'8 est. 250/260 Pounds and i been reading online articles that stated i should go for a size like 161-163, any suggestion on the size and boards to get? Do you think the resort will not let me rent their equipment due to my weight? Please someone help me up and give me some suggestions and tips. I never been to snowboarding resort before and i'd like to know if i go would i be the only big guy in the mountain lol.
