I'm a gear whore so I'm always looking around shops in Dillon, Friso and Silverthorne when I'm up boarding. You can get pretty good deals if you just ask.
I sense some heavy flirting going on here

I look around locally first and can usually find what I want or have it ordered by one of the locals. When you stick local, on a regular basis, most will give you some sort of hook up. if for some reason I can't find it in a shop between Edwards and breckenridge I will look online for the best deal. Over the years I have made Friends with a few companyowners and they just give me pro form discount codes since between my wife, son and I we go through some gear..... Plus we all love shopping and buying.


The key is not to get all bent out of shape because the won't come off their price by $20 to match an online store. Get over it and buy local, it works out for the better in the end. When my son is riding on his own and something happens to his gear, he can walk in to 3-4 different shops and they will help him fix it or give him a new one that I can settle up with later...... For a good deal. This rolls into summer sports now too like mountain bing and long boarding.....

Sup Vaporeon, I'm from Fullerton too! Sick. That said check out geartrade.com. Normally, the few months right after the season ends, they have a shit ton of gear for sale. It's like an ebay for outdoor gear/sports, but better cuz there's no bidding, it's all buy it now. Most of the gear for sale is from backcountry.com anyways, it's just returned gear or w.e. if you don't mind someone else owning, ripping off the tag, and sending it back, then buying it for 50% off! Got most of my gear from there. New K2 Maysis for $127(normally $250), 686 jacket and pants for $90 total(normally about $200 and $250 a piece), and my Lib Tec Attack Banana for $207 (normally $579). I'd say that's a win in my book. Right now however, most of the shit has been bought and hasn't been restocked yet since the next season has come up yet, but give it a check out. Shit, if you ever go boarding and need to carpool/split costs hit me up!

Geartrade is da bomb! Also departmentofgoods.com usually hassome pretty good deals. It is the outlet store for backcountry. if you are looking for something specific use the searchbar at cleansnipe.com, they can usually find the best prices from any website.

Also, check out theclymb.com. First, you need to request a membership to there. Once you do, it's members only, but they have all sorts of sales on all kinds of Outdoor companies. Right now they have Spy Platoon goggles on sale for $60 brand new. two weeks ago they had Von Zipper goggles and 2013 Lib Tech boards for sale. Its an awesome site if you like outdoor gear. they sell fishing gear, camping gear, knives, summer/winter clothes, long boards, all kinds of stuff

Dogfunk.com: Snowboards | Skateboards | Snowboard Gear & Clothing | Burton, DC, Volcom & More Brands

They are the best online retailer. All board company. Returns are super easy. They'll refund you even before they receive the merchandise.

I have been in shops and in some I have walked around for 20 minutes beofre someone comes up and wants to help. Plus, during the season, you have a bunch of noob sales people who really don't care what it is I'm trying to tell them. They are more concerned with the 5 other people who are trying to buy thier first snowboard behind me.

Sad to say but I have had a better shopping experience with dogfunk. The chat tool is helpful, I have NEVER called them. I always use chat and it's awesome.

Another cool one is buysnow.com

I bought my board/boots/bindings from a local snow/ski shop and the service i got was excellent, granted i was the only person in the store at the time . Spent about 2 hours with the owner going over everything and picking out what would be good for me, and he gave me a great deal! That said, ive bought all my accessories since from theclymb.com
