  1. Thanks for the quick response and the good advice. I am leaning towards getting an all mountain ski like the Volkl AC30 (waist 76) and bringing it to Japan - it will be inconvenient to carry it around, but I can get to use it, and then later in Aus. I am an intermediate skier with main interest in the groom run.....maybe I will change my mind when I have a taste of the powder in Niseko. I saw a pair for around AU $1000.00 with binding in an off season sale in Sydney, and it is about the same price to buy online from US. Unfortunatley, I am going striaght to Niseko, so I don;t ha
  2. I am an intermediate skier with an old ski and thinking of upgrading. I will be going to Niseko and Hakuba in Jan for 3 weeks. Should I buy a new pair of ski here in Sydney and bring it over or should I rent a pair in in Japan, and perhaps buy something in Japan after trying out a few models. The problem with carrying the skis is the weight and inconvenience, but I get to use my own ski and save on the cost of rental. Any advice?
  3. I am going to Niseko fo 2 weeks in Dec. I am thinking about geting a new pair of skis (mine is about 7 years old). Is it worth buying in Niseko or Sydney? I have ever tried off piste - perhaps I should rent and check the powder skis? Appreciate any advice
  4. I will be going to Niseko from 22/12/07 to 3/1/8. I am an early intermediate (just comfortable with gentle Blue runs) I like the idea of skiing powder and improving my skiing - don't mind spending on lessons, private if necessary. Can anyone advise on a good school and are lessons available over that "holiday" period? Which of the area, Hirafu, Annupuri etc would be more convenient for such lessons?
