Get.KronkI'm not going to be that helpful, as I just started out doing some ski-mountaineering stuff this spring, but I would say if you have a local shop or something go in there and ask around. After about an hour in Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder I knew when to leave, what I needed to bring, I had stories about the line I wanted to ski, and everything there to buy. After just one trip, and keep in mind the mission of this was to ski, I would say an ice axe and crampons are an absolute necessity.
