    Yea, I'll keep my eyes open but Spain's classifieds are nothing like Canada or the US.

    People ask for ridiculous prices - sometimes more than MSRP, for shitty old beat up crap. It's so bad I don't usually even bother looking anymore.

    Where about are you heading? Trying to line up a trip with Hokkaido backcountry club to shred some gnarly stuff. Heard the resorts are a bit too mellow for somebody looking for steeps but Iíve never been
    BB, i know you have much more disposable income than I, but you don't need to join a club and spend %50 over cost, to get the goods. That said, yeah if you're going to do slack/back, and don't have anyone to meet up with, there are resorts that have a Slackcountry meet room (Kiroro), where you may be able to join up. And yes, not as steep as here, but more snow.

    Rent a Honda Fit, or equivalent, and just drive. You'll want to get accommodations booked around Niseko, but other than that --- you can stay in any of the cities and find cheap accommodations. (Otaru, Sapporo, Asahikawa) etc; Or just stay at Moiwa for a couple weeks haha.
    I'm likely going to skip this year, and just do a Baker trip, but feel free to PM me if you need more info.

    Are you in Canada anytime soon? I'm about to liquidate my last seasons Free Thinker 162 on Cartels.

    Sadly no but thanks for the offer. There's an "Outlet Sale" here in a couple of weeks so hope they'll have some deals on old inventory.

    I found some Burton Missions for 150€. Reckon they'll do the trick for an Intermediate All-Mountain binding on my Dancehaul?

    Make sure they are they are “Re:Flex” mounting system. If they are “EST”, they won’t fit on that Salomon or any other non-Burton.

    Thanks - I'd thought I'd found a good deal on Cartel X's for 220€ but then realized that the EST was the channel system. I've gone ahead and ordered them as I reckon they'll do me for a while... hopefully they're stiff enough for a volume adjusted board.

    I'm going to Hokkaido. I personally like being based in Niseko and you can either hit the resort or do day trips. Niseko has some pretty good terrain as does Rusuutsu if there's lots of snow. You don't need a guide, everything is very straightforward. See something you want to ski, park, start skinning.

    That said, if you want to hit couloirs, big alpine, even big subalpine just go somewhere here like McMurdo or any of the million big lines you can access with a sled around here. Imo the best part of Japan is the unlimited lift assisted deep powder. We have better terrain than Japan as does Europe for big lines. I've been all over Japan and imo the sweet spot is Niseko/Rusuutsu. Japan Alps have better terrain but less consistent snow.

    I would get a sled here, it opens up tons of options and the lazy ass sledders can't sled the good ski lines anyway so even in the snowmobile club areas there's tons of good skiing
