If anyone has any suggestions on gear to use, or if im missing anything i would love to hear it!

I'm sorry but you're missing so many things. If you have never skied in the backcountry before, please go take an avalanche safety course. PLEASE. They should teach most importantly, the knowledge you need to take with you so you won't kill yourself or someone else, and secondly what you need to bring. Or, if there is someone you know who has a lot of experience they will tell you what you need to know and pack. If you think you will need an airbag, you shouldn't go out, however, it is nice to have.

So far you have skis, skins, beacon, shovel, probe, and bindings. Here is the start of a list of some things that remain, but it is not exhaustive and depends on your trip.
