They seem to have quite a bit of last years stuff at pretty good prices. My buddy just bought some PEs from them for cheap.

First check your local shops. I picked up some of last year's PEs with PX-12 jib bindings for less than $300 - much less than anything online.

If that doesn't work out, another online shop that I've had luck with is Evogear and Evogear-outlet. The outlet has leftover skis as well as used skis. They sometimes offer free shipping. I have found and heard that they are very conservative when they rate their used equipment. Everyone that I've heard from has always found the skis to be in better condition than described.

I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. No seriously, another plug for evogear outlet. Level nine sports looks like they have good deals too.

I have made several purchases from Proskiguy.com. They had good prices and gave me no hassle when I returned a pair (unsued) for full refund, less shipping, because I changed my mind. BTY I have no relationship with them.

Would you believe Amazon.com? I am surprised to see that they now offer new 2007 Ten Eighty Guns for $400. Sweet! Of course I would have to pay sales tax to Amazon. Can avoid sales tax at other sites. Smart thing to do is to Summer buy at the local shop, pay the tax but not the shipping. Standard shipping is about $30.

Also good deals on used/demo skis at http://www.mountaintimesports.com and at http://www.skiuniverse.com

In the past I have ordered several skis from http://www.skinetsports.com/ However, they don't seem to be offering my kind of skis anymore.

I got some "new" 05-06 Outlaws from them for $357 including shipping, still in the shrink wrap. Great deal.

Here is a good place to start:

You can often find gear in this new "Sponosor Deals" forum, or from private sellers in the Gear Swap forum. Between SJ and myself, most every brand is represented here, and often at a discount. Before I worked at Village Bike and Ski, I would typically buy from my local shop that had the brands that I liked, which was all the way up in Portland. I have also purchased skis on Ebay, although I wouldn't recommend it, unless you trust the seller. I was dissapointed with the condition of the skis in more than one instance.

Good luck in your search!

SierraJim and dawgcatching have nearly everything covered, and both great guys!!

I buy from all over.

In the past I have purchased skis from SierraJim's shop (Sierra Snowboard & Ski).

I also frequent the local shops both here in San Francisco and up in Tahoe.

usually if I find a ski I like I'll go to the shops first and see what kind of deal they can make in terms of matching or beating an internet deal. i'd much rather support the local shop first.

if that doesn't pan out then i do the internet thing.

i've bought bindings from Evo Gear and skis from Christy Sports over the past year.

I've bought a couple from Ptex as well as SierraJim. Both great to deal with

dawgcatching is the member/sponsor who posted this ^^^.
If you go to the link in the post it will take you to the sponsor Deals forum area where you'll find some very reputable guys.
dawgcatching has a list of some deals in that forum and takes time to answer questions.

You'll also find sierrajim at www.sierrasnowboard.com
and Ptex, among others who cover a variety of ski, boot, and ski tuning needs.

I get all my ski gear at our local ski shop, Mad Dog's Source for Sports in Abbotsford, BC. I may pay a bit more, but it's worth it. Mad Dog's has a great staff. They don't try to sell you anything that isn't right for your style of skiing. They are always available to discuss equipment problems, or just shoot the breeze about skiing. Every November Mad Dog's helps kick-off the ski season by sponsoring the annual Warren Miller flick with an after-party at the store featuring free beer and snacks to movie-goers. The store is an important part of the ski community, and I support that.
