Best Prices On Rossignol Scope Snowboard 159

Is that a decent board / decent deal? I'm looking for a first board/boots/bindings and I don't have ALL that much to spend ><

It's a 1 day thing and I have no idea.

Is it just me or is SAC pretty weak ever since they killed off tramdock and brociety? I understand folks have clamped down on both the manufacturing side and ordering side, but it's been a while since I saw something that even tempted me on these sites. Am I just checking at the wrong times?

I have all but given up on WM and SAC to provide anything decent in regards to gear. The days of good boards, bindings and even boots are gone me thinks....

Still ok for the odd accessory like gloves or goggles...

Yeah I have noticed the lack of snow gear...maybe it will pick back up in the spring. Since they have less sites it won't be as good as it was before. They still have a good amount of mtb and backpacking gear. If they kill off chainlove that to me will signal the end of sac.

You do realize SAC is what started all of these. There was no chainlove, or tramdock, or whiskeymilitia. It was only SAC. They then expanded it to break up the gear into single "sports" and they may not have done very well so they are getting rid of the weaker ones. If this happens to all of them, I hope it is not the end of SAC. I would expect it to just revert back to a one site sort of deal like it was originally.


Having said all that, I will agree that the quality of the items has been decreasing. And when there are good items it is only in size XXXXXL. I wonder if this is because of all the discount sites around now that are not one sale at a time, but still offer significant savings (evo-gear, dogfunk, etc).

I don't think so, I think it's a combination of Backcountry buying less stuff and snowboarding manufacturers making less stuff. The opportunities to make money on close-outs or to offload something they bought just way too much of aren't there any more. This year it does seem to be primarily soft goods, which has higher margin than hard goods.

Kimchi is correct.

The company I work for has a site like this as well called The Daily Steal. This site is loaded up with our close-out items, overstocked items, and sizes that just didn't sell.

Over time, retailers are getting smarter with their ordering. The more we dial in our supply for demand, the less excess we get. Also, the economy affects this as well. As consumers spend less, retailers order less. However, I will say 2010 was a stellar year.

Another reason you see less sales now is because of tighter pricing control by the manufacturers. After what happened with Sierra, the brands finally put the hammer down and tightened up enforcement of these pricing rules.

While these deal sites are awesome for consumers, it's not actually good for retailers in terms of profitability. The discounts are often so deep, that they actually take a loss (big wholesale orders excluded). The reason they keep it running is because it's better to get some of your costs back than none at all with excess inventory. Not even softgoods are profitable on these sites. Hardgoods is by far the worst.
