New Member - Intermediate Rider - Looking to buy new gear

Hey guys, first post on the site. I'm 24, and have snowboarded for about 5 years, but those 5 years were from about 13-18 when I was in high school, and then I didn't get any snowboarding in when I was in college. I now am itching to get back into it and I need some new gear for next season in which I'm going to get a Season pass to a local resort here in upstate NY.

I'm thinking about probably buying my new board and bindings on The House. Question is, when is the right time to buy? I am strictly looking for Burton gear, and The House currently has 20% off on lots of gear including the Custom Flying V 163 which I want to get. Is now the time to bite though? Will it go down more if I wait longer? Is there a chance that it'll sell out if I wait longer and I'll miss my opportunity? Haven't bought a board in a very long time so don't know the trends for sales and don't want to pay more than I have to.

end of season is preferable. Bigger discounts, but you run the risk of not getting the board/size you want.

iirc, I got my 2013 Burton Sherlock Flying-V last year from dogfunk for 40% off... end of season.

What exactly is considered "end of season"? Mid-march? I imagine it's different depending on where you live, but I'm sure the retailers all consider some month end of season.

IIRC, deals start popping up around April 1st.

This thread lists out many online retailers. I would check the websites often to see when they start listing the end-of-season sales. They would probably update their front page with those kind of promotions.
