Default Snowboard Times Places to Buy

On most of the other threads they most people are saying you can get insane deals in the mid season if you look the right places. Im hoping to go to Whistler in 2009/2010 on a working holiday and want to get a board when I get there (details about that in another thread later).

With US/Canada will I get the same deals in Canada than from the US? When is the discount season and will I still pick up good deals in September/October?

You will not get the same deals in Canada that you will be able to get in the States, especially if you plan to buy your gear at a resort like Whistler. After New Years is when you will start to see snowboard gear getting marked down. Being in Canada, I can say that the best deals I have found have been online through sites like steepandcheap.com or whiskeymilitia.com. The only drawback to these 2 sites is that they only post 1 deal at a time. They do have some killer deals but you have to hit the website at the right time. The parent company of these 2 sites also have backcountry.com and dogfunk.com which are regular retail sites but the discounts will not be as big.

Another thumbs up for Sierra & DogFunk. Bought sum stuff there & had em sent to me here in Oz. Arrived in top notch, just waiting to try em out now. So i imagine u wouldn't have too much trouble sending them to Canada. Also while ur there, if ur based in Vancouver & travel up to Whistler which most ppl do, there are quite a few snowboard shops there. Altho deals wouldn't be as good as they are online but u can at least look & try the gear on b4 buying em online to save.

I might have to get stuff sent to someone in the US or Canada and then pick them up when I get there. Might be the cheapest way. Apparently I get discount as employee but probably not as good as the online stores.

EDIT: What is the difference between these two? Am I going to get a much better deal on ebay?

Same year but they have different logos. Why would it be so cheap to get it locally?
