Yeah,

I need to order now or risk it not arriving when I leave. So I ordered through Chris and will hope it all works out. Unfortunately I head back on the 5th of January this year (Holiday starts on the 3rd of December) but next year will be over later and would be keen if you head over again. Goodluck on the Jacket and keep me posted on how it goes, so I can sleep a little easier.

If you look on the internet I'm sure you can find places recommended near Niseko.

If anyone is interested in Nozawa in Nagano here is a vid of me there.

All lift accessed with a little hiking on top.
Just a word of warning if you do go here and want to do some runs like this be with a local who knows the way and know what you are doing. You can get lost easily or into worse trouble.

Any constructive criticism or tips are welcome.

The link to the vid is from my home page which is all in Japanese, its gone all funky but the link still works if you click it. Can't wait for this years season.

@dreampow

As a response from your ripped off thread:

I too think it's outrageous that stuff here is being sold at twice the price (sometimes even more.) However, I have been able to get a Libtech t.rice and flux sf45 bindings all at US MSRP.

One thing I do not understand is how come local companies like Moss, Gentem, and even Yonex are selling boards that cost more than a Libtech Cygnus X or a Burton Method?

I am heading to rusutsu in on jan 20 and am trying to get a waxing iron that will work on japans 100v power, I think I will need to get it sent to rusutsu resort as I will be flying into new chitose and straight on the bus from there. Can any of you guys help me out with who to contact? I know there are a few shops in sapporo but I wont be able to make it there.
Cheers Leigh
