My New Rome 390s

Just got my new Rome 390s in the mail today. New 2008 Rust and White for $105 shipped. I'm going to have to make the trek to Banff this weekend to try them out. Hope they are as good as everyone says they are.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

Great price! Where'd you get 'em from??

Can you suggest a few resorts between Calgary/Edmonton for a Beginner-Intermediate rider? Thinking about planning a trip to Alberta next year. Only been during the summer, never for riding. Thanks~!

Crazy end of season deals lol.I ended up paying $225 Canadian back in December, and that was discounted too. I actually love the 390's so much, that I really don't want to ride anything else, and thus, haven't bought tht 2nd pair of bindings that I need for my other board yet. Great bindings, you'll love them.

I got them off of eBay. Some chick in Ontario had 10 pairs of bindings and she sold them for a "Buy It Now" price of $75 + $30 for shipping. I was scared because it seemed too good to be true but she delivered.


There is nothing between Edmonton and Calgary. There is Canyon Ski Area outside of Red Deer on the banks of the Red Deer River but it is currently up for sale and may not open next year if real estate developers buy it up. Best bet is Canada Olympic Park (C.O.P.) in Calgary, Nakiska is 1/2 hour west of Calgary, or just bite the bullet and head to Banff 1 hr west of Calgary.

Arsenals

I got a pair of '08 Arsenals for 96.00 online...they are great, super adjustable and worth every cent. +1 on Rome Bindings.

Sorry. I did mean including Jasper/Banff - I guess I could work more on my geography.
