Hi There,

I'm from Holland travelling 19th of February to Big White(BC) for 6 weeks . I'm going all by myself and was wondering if anybody here is going to be there around that period. I will spend one day in Vancouver, any advice about a good shop for snowboard clothes and an Ipod?

Thnx, Saima

Heya, sounds like a good plan to go there for a couple of weeks. Be aware that buying snowboardgear is friggin expensive in Canada. No discounts and ridicilous prices for last seasons stuff. Buy your expensive gear in Holland. You will be out cheaper that way.
Just wondering, why didn't you fly into Kelowna. Because Big White is quite far away from Vancouver.
Anywayz Veel plezier daar :)

For outdoor clothes, I suggest going to the broadway and main st area. It is full of outdoor shops, the biggest and best being mountain equipment co-op (MEC) but there are many others around to shop around and find the best price.

Of course if you want specific snowboard gear, then going the W 4th Ave and Burrard would be a better choice. They have a few board shops there.

Right now would probably be a good time to buy, as the season is ending and stores want to get rid of their stock. But i can't compare prices to those in holland.
