Find local resources to invest in(shop), get your knowledge from places like this website, if you cannot purchase local, try to purchase direct, then you can actually support the brand you are supposedly supporting through your purchase.

REI lifetime membership is also worthwhile IMO, one time 20 bucks. For like a thousand reasons don't really care if there are haters I don't rep them or anything.

outdoor brands I like:

anything made out of merino wool, you need because its not only vastly superior to everything, but is also fragile and if u use it alot will wear out (baclava, scarf, baselayers, socks, buff, name it wear it).

Smartwool, PhD socks in particular, every style
Volcom
32
Electric
REI
Patagonia
Keen
Remind
Burton love/hate
K2 love/hate
Never Summer
Gore Tex anything

recognize the unvalue walmartiness of certain and many online retailers. If going into Walmart and getting the best deal is your bottom line then fine. Wiredsport takes a great effort to contribute to this website, and there are a couple other examples where your money is put into the industry instead of bottom lining it.

GL, and remember, shop smart, shop S-mart.

There is no 1 place that is the cheapest/best to buy EVERYTHING. Friends, local shop, craigslist, ebay, evo, rei, geartrade, backcountry. Make a list of stuff, pull the trigger at the desired price and repeat. I've bought a ton of bc/splitty stuff this year and have gotten some great deals (including free) and average deals though none for full msrp.

Went to vegas at powder and sun and they helped me out quite a bit, told me to just rent a board for now and spend the money I would have spent on the board on lessons. I did buy snowboard boots Orion Boots | All Mountain | Ride Snowboards 2012-2013 I think theyre the 2012 model though cause he gave me 30% off.

One question though are these snowboarding pants? Would these be a good deal
Oakley Flare Pant available online at Oakley Vault

or these

Oakley Chief Pants available online at Oakley Vault

Locations To Buy New and Used Sporting Goods and Fitness Equipment | Play It Again Sports

Play it again sports has used and new equipment for the cheapest prices ever! I think you can only buy in-store but maybe there's a location near you... I got brand-new Burton boots for $50 and a snowboard w/ bindings for $250 but there were a bunch of legit snowboard binding combos for about $100 and they had some children's snowboards and bindings for $26 (and they were actual all-mountain snowboards not the plastic ones that you use on sled hills)

I have had luck with EVO and Dogfunk and one year I ended up buying a board at a super price at a Labor Day sale on-line odd time of year but they advertised a Huge Labor Day Sale and I got a board like 75% off. Yes it was previous season but was a steal as I said.

I truly try to buy all my gear from my local guy and he will even do special order and call manufactures directly to get me something and he comes through 95% of the time.

Has anyone said Gear Trade . com you can buy from backcountry on there. It is usually slightly used or returned gear.

I've had good luck with Dogfunk.com: Snowboards | Skateboards | Snowboard Gear & Clothing | Burton, DC, Volcom & More Brands, if you use the chat they may give you additional deals / discounts / packages / free ship etc...

they have the best return policy - use it, don't like it, return it; no questions asked. even boards.

Ski, Snowboard, Wakeboard, Skateboard & the Freshest Clothes | evo is another I frequent online,

as well as Eternal | Snowboard Gear Boots Bindings Pants Jackets Skate Shoes
