Japan Setup

Hey all,

Any tips from those who've ridden in Japan? Heading there soon and wanting to know what you guys do when setting up your board and bindings...I'm used to Aussie and NZ groomers so this will be a BIG change :-)

Thanks heaps!

you should have your bindings dialed in if ur snowboarding already. unless you plan on doing some extreme terrain, just have a comfortable stance with your feet more than shoulder width apart. you want to stand wide enough to flex your knees and retain a comfortable standing position. then you need to work on the angles of your feet. I find it easiest to stand with my feet in a duck position. i like to ride with my front foot at 2-3 degrees more than my back foot. you can always make changes on the mountain!

it depends on which part of japan you're heading to and when...and if it snows when you're here. Just keep your stuff setup normal and if it dumps, you can move your bindings back (towards the tail) a spot or two to make riding pow easier.

Thanks guys, we're heading to Niseko early March - I'll have to keep an eye on the charts and move everything accordingly it looks like

Been to Niseko before and its amazing!! Was there 2 weeks and we had powder conditions nearly everyday. All i did was set my bindings back a little on the really deep days and just follow the fall line! Also depends on your board though as i was on a standard camber board. If on a rocker board you will be flying and might not need much set back. Best thing sbout boarding in Niseko is the nighta!

Thanks mate, I'll be riding a C2-BTX board so as you say might just leave it unless it dumps and then move them back. I've heard nights are awesome, i'm keen to check it out!
