mattm7Now is the best time to buy with all the summer sales if you're on a budget although it might be a bit harder to find correct sizes on items. can't really recommend many skis as i've only owned K2 press and NFXs, prefered the presses they were more fun. Planks make really good jackets if you want to check them out.
powpatrolJackets and all of that are up to you,but you should be able to find some good ones in summer sales.
With the skis you need to give more information so that you can get a good recommendation.
Where do you ski? How good of a skier are you?
