  1. I had an old pair of Flows, solid and well built. Then I upgraded to the newer version with the adjustable ratchets. Unfortunately the newer version had serious reliability issues. Bits and pieces started falling off through regular use after a few trips.


    I love the speed and simplicity of Flow bindings, but I have a long standing problem with the binding unlocking/popping off when landing big jumps. In one particular incident, both the bindings popped off after a hard landing and my board just came off entirely. My shin landed on the edge of my board and a strip of skin got scrapped off.. through the wear. After that incident, I relegated my Flows as lenders for friends without equipment.


    I got the Burton P1 Speed Zone bindings and I'm very happy with them. It's actually a good and very reliable quick clip on system, but Burton is no longer manufacturing them for sale.

  2. It dumped everywhere leading up to the end of last week. A couple of friends and I were lucky enough to be in Nozawa Onsen. According to Snow Japan daily snow reports, total snow fall from Thurs-Sat = 180cm.


    We couldn't touch the bottom of the snow pack when we went face first into the pow!


    After the snow had settled a bit overnight, we took a few fresh turns (with full avy gear) down the "forbidden" side-country. I can't believe how unbelievably good this season is turning out so far (especially after the last season!!!)

  3. Thanks for the info Dyna. Was in Niseko the past 5 days, just came back to Tokyo. Heard about the program on this board and saw the flyers on the Niseko Village Gondola, but we decided to head up to the peak on Tuesday. Weather was great and we had a great run down to the 3rd bowl in almost perfect weather conditions. Saw some lines under the Niseko Village gondola on the way up, must have been your lines! smile
