Another Aussie

Hey guys

Yes, another Aussie here, from Sydney. Have been boarding now for about 15 years, and been lurking around the forums for a while. Decided it was time to contribute something.

Just ordered a pair of NOW bindings, so will be looking forward to see how they go, and hopefully are as good as the reviews. Not very good timing though, as the season has just ended here. Looks like a ticket to Japan is on the cards! Now just to convince the boss....

Cheers

Hey bud, am from Sydney too. Was gonna hit Japan this winter but managed to score a months leave, so though cruising thru the Rockies would be the way to go. You ride in aus much?

Hi mate. Yes, mostly Thredbo or Perisher. Have been to Hotham a couple of times also. Last couple of years haven't been able to get down there as much as I'd like.

Rockies are sensational, especially BC Canada. Have been a few times. Huge mountains, but Japan has the best powder. Decision, deepest powder, or biggest mountains?

If you've got a month the Rockies is the way to go. Try starting in Banff and working your way across to Whistler. So much great terrain! Did it in 2004.

Make sure you spend a day at Kicking Horse, about 1.5 hours drive from Banff. Just one massive steep bowl with a Gondola strung up the middle. Used to be just a heliski spot. Don't miss it.
