seriously, go to Zumiez in Crossgates. i went there last year and got a pair of 32 prions from the previous season for $85. they always seems to have decent deals. if not head to alpin house in clifton park. OR just wait until the november 5,6,7 to go to the Albany Ski & Snowboard expo. they always have decent deals there on good boots.
i know we don't have a lot of good shops around here but don't waste your time with dicks or sports authority if you're looking for variety.
