Sounds like to me that if you wait to buy in the US you'll save a ton of money. Plenty of good shops in Summit that can fit you. Even with the higher resort area costs, you are going to spend about 1/3 of what you are quoting for in Australia. I'd wait.

Sucks gear is so expensive over there...
Bingo I'm sick of spending an hour with a person going through all options only to have them walk out and know they're going to go buy at either sports authority or the internet. Its a waste of my time and takes money from my pocket.
