i'm jealous you got to experience Mammoth. my plans for Mammoth last weekend were scratched due to the crazy storm that left my friends and i stranded at 3am on highway 88.
sorry i can't help much with what kind of board and bindings you should get because i just started snowboarding this season. all the gear i bought was under my bf's advice. the only thing i know is that your board should be between your shoulders and nose. since it's almost the end of the season, a lot of the winter sports stores are having sales so you should be able to get most of your gear for cheap.

What are you looking for board wise, i just bought myself a Rome and it is amazing. Are you planning on going alot? What kind of terrain do you ride? what price range? how tall are you? hopefully with that info i can help you find something good
i agree. i started out as regular, but couldn't even get down the bunny slopes without falling a million times. then i changed to goofie and boy, did that make a difference. i was able to go down the intermediate slopes with only 3 falls. even got around to carving, too.
