Hey guys I'm going in my first snowboard trip in forever and have no gear whatsoever. Wondering what kind of pants, jacket, base layers to get. Going to Breckinridge Dec 7-11. Stuff is still kinda cheap so I'm just looking for what type of materials to get and whether or not I'd need insulated pants or not.

Breckenfridge can get a little cold, but I've always been fine with my 686 smarty originals, which have removable fleece liners. If its real cold I'll throw a thin base layer on under neath.

as for coats, my insulated coat has been a little too hot for me even with vents on pants and coat open. although it's nice on super cold mornings going up the lift, I hate it by mid day. I'd look into a good waterproof shell with a nice light to mid weight fleece.

if you need gloves, highly recommend the dakine cobra. my have lasted many seasons and still in great shape. can't go wrong with leather + goretex + fleece liner.
if you need googles, spherical polarized lenses are pricey, but so worth it.

keep an eye on whisky militia and the other clearance sites owned by backcountry/dogfunk
