  1. Greenroome just want you to know how much you rock (and not just cos green is the best color). I followed ur tip straight to the little white house and got this year's burton mayhem (pretty much untouched) + bindings, boots (again untouched) and rolling board bag for 45000 yen. If you're in niseko this week you should let me buy you and your wife a beer!

I am a very aggressive skier/snowboarder (mostly off piste and randonnee). I just bought new randonnee gear last year, but need a new snowboard.... How do prices in Japan compare to the US for example? I'm in the states at the moment, so
