Default When in the year do prices drop?

So currently, a lot of boards are at 40-50% off b/c of "clearance sale".

Did this just happen? Does April mark the beginning of another price drop to say 60%?

I'm just trying to figure out around when do stores mark down their prices. Like, 1st drop in price in March, next drop in May, final drop in summer?

This is my 1st year looking to buy winter clothes/snowboard gear so want to know if I should wait another few weeks to buy things or if the next drop won't be till June.

Thanks!

End of February and March tend to be the best for 50% off sales.

Usually the next big drop is going to be the stuff that no one wants to buy.

I think that the best time to buy is in the fall when most places are really trying to get rid of last year's stuff and start selling the new stuff. Usually places like buysnow.com and the-house.com (check sticky for other good sites) have some GREAT deals in the fall on some pretty awesome equipment. Hope this helps!!

The reason I ask is that I've now bought boots and a board and just need bindings.

I'm not too picky on bindings, just want decent quality ones as good and cheap if possible. For example, Burton freestyles, customs, and Ride EX are all about $60-85 right now and wondering if binding prices will drop even more by next season (I don't plan on riding again this season).

be wary of the sizes that are left as well. always a ton of small.

I'm having an I.M. right now, but it's not a smelly one, it smells quite nice!
