When I was in Sweden over 10 years ago, a draft beer was $8. That place is crazy expensive. Norway is even worse if I remember correctly.

haha, it's still at exactly that price. Even us Swedes are aware of how ridiculously expensive that is. So we tend to get wasted before going out, as regular uncooled bears at the "alcohol dispensary" are about 1 dollar 50 to about 2 bucks (the cheapest ones that is). I bet even that's expensive in an American's eyes.

I remember that too... Getting drunk before even going out at midnight. I seem to remember drinking Jul Must (sp?) with some homemade liquor. Nasty shit...

iv never been to sportchek for any snowboard gear, but id assume the staff generally isnt very knowledgeable concerning snowboards. if anyone on staff did know a lot, it would probably just be them and not a reflection of any training the store gave them. without good training i dont imagine the staff would be able to give a good wax or tune.
