Just go to some sporting goods place where they sell stuff like that or even go up to the mountain shop and get some. Pants are pants. I prefer mittens. They are warmer.

A jacket is at least $150. Good pants are the same. Gloves are $50+. Goggles approach $100 for anything decent. It's not cheap.

whiskeymilitia.com and dogfunk.com are my go-to sites

TJ Maxx or some **** or even some places you can rent bibs

I would see how your like it first before you go out spending $400 on gear (not including your snowboard/boots/bindings)

Wanted to hit the "mountain" for my third time this weekend but it's been raining ice this week and it's not really worth it. Mountain is in quotes because we snowboard on hills in the great plains.

I got skiing pants "Artix" at Sports authority for $30. Military surplus Parka/Gore-tex jacket for $50. Pair of sunglasses for $10. Milspec beanie for $4, and good Water/Windproof Adidas gloves for $25.

Oh don't forget Skiing socks. Those were $18 for a set of 2.

Sunglasses wouldn't cut it for me.

I hardly snowboard unfortunately so I rent the board, boots, and bindings. Clothing-wise...I wear my old BDU Gortex jacket with fleece liner, milspec thermals under jeans under old BDU Gortex pants, and my issued windblocker head/face covering.
