Ok... youre totally looking in all the wrong places. You should be able to find just about any ski you want for under $450... you just need to buy last years. Or wait one more month and you can get this years demos, use them with the bindings the rest of the season and save over the summer for some quality bindings.
There is virtually no ski you can pick up full price for less than $450, and not many you can pick up mid season sale for less than that.. but last years... you are looking at $200 - $300. I got a pair of Lines for $300 with bindings brand new. $275 for a pair of AR5s with bindings a few years back. $325 for a pair of ARWs on March 1st with bindings...
Wait 2 more weeks. Figure out what skis you want. Call Sports Chalet in Huntington Beach, CA... see if they have what you want, if they don't, see if they can find it. They ship pretty cheap and their sale is generally 50% off but you wont find the stuff online.
Still dont find what you want, start calling ski shops regardless of location and asking if they have what you want as a demo and at what price they would be willing to part.
