Default Beginner buying a board

I've seen all the stuff about 5150, sim, etc being all crap, so I've decided that if I can afford it, I'll buy something decent.
My question is, at this time of the year, would snowboard/ski shops have gear from last year on sale? Places like sportinglife or skiis and biikes. Would they have boards from last year in store, on clearance, that they don't show on their websites? Thanks.

Alot of websites sell previous seasons boards for much cheaper, what's your budget?

Here's some good fundamental data. Take the time to read the second link...not just the chart in the first one.

Here's a link that will take you to a Backcountry.com ad with a discount code. They have lots of stuff at good prices and this may make those prices better.

Lots of questions -

Budget, riding style, frequency of riding, skills, desires, where you ride, etc go into the decision.

My budget would be around $400 for the board and bindings, and a problem is that a lot of the websites are based in the US and I live in Canada so sometimes, they'll tack on a $100 customs fee at the border.
