Akina-
Stay away from internet stuff until you have done a lot of price research locally. The internet is hit and miss with regard to good deals so you really need to be armed with good info before making a purchase on-line. For me, it was a matter of going into local ski and board shops and looking around.

Look for end of season sales, but make sure your really getting a deal. That means shopping around until you are pretty familiar with prices before making the purchase.

In Idaho, there is a store called Sports Authority and they have a pre-season sale called "sniagrab" (bargains spelled backwards). They have great deals on skis and boards, and all of the mounting and tuning is 1/2 price.

There is also a thing here called the Ski Swap. People bring all of their used stuff to an event at the Fairgrounds where the sell and trade it with each other. I've never been to it, but I understand that you can find some great stuff for cheap. Get there early because it draws a crowd.

Hopefully this will give you some ideas on finding good stuff for you and your fiance in your area. Let us know if you find some cool stuff.

Ebay is the bomb sometimes, you can grab some sick deals if you know what you are looking for.

WARNING,
Do not buy boots online. There are endless shapes of boots and they are ment to fit the endless shapes of feet. If you get the wrong shape, and chances are you will, your feet will hate you. For your boots go see a good bootfitter near a ski resort or local SKI SHOP (not a big box store). Find out if they have boot fitters or just people that sell boots (big difference). I am a boot fitter in California and at least once a week during ski season i get someone coming in who bought boots online or at a big box store and purchased the wrong ones. Mostly the mistake made is the boot was too big resulting in movement in the boots and loss of toe nails. Most people do not realize how comfortable your boots can be. I urge you, do not buy boots online. You can ski any ski you find and have fun, but skis wont hurt you foot, your boots will. Save money on skis, buy the right boots.

I bought skis from www.rei.com but before I bought the skis I went to a few stores and checked out what I wanted. Finally got a great deal on the Volkl S4's
