Top of the line equipment 8-10 years ago...
I am in the process of upgrading my ride after maybe six or seven years of only going occasionally. I got some Rome Targas to replace my Salomon S-Pros (these were top of the line Salomon-provided bindings just 10-12 years ago).
I am still workging to upgrade my board (a Rossignol-provided Premier 159 from also 12 years ago that was $600+ then) but I swapped the bindings out last night.
The most interesting thing when I pulled them apart?
The board was made in Spain and the bindings were made in Italy (both were hidden from view with the bindings installed. Replacing the Italian-built bindings with "top of the line" Chinese-built ones was a little depressing.
At least I am holding out for an American-built board. Although...I love the Premier. I was getting sentimental about it. Maybe I should look to Rossignol again (although I only got Rossi the first time because it was free)? They aren't built in the US though. I doubt they're even built in Europe anymore.
Things change a lot in ten years. As a 30 year old, this may be the first time in my life I felt like I was getting old.
