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.
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.
