Prices on goretex stuff have gone crazy in the past few years.

There are plenty of alternatives that offer 90% of the value at half or less the price.

I would have preferred a different color but $50 I had to overlook the obvious, at least if I spill my curry on them at lunch you won't notice

Hey Seemore, I arrive in Rusutsu on the 10th of Jan, so if you want we could share some turns :thumbsup:

 

I am interested to hear your thoughts on the fishcuit, I can't help but think it will be great fun while there is enough of a slope, but really annoying when you are trying to keep speed up through any flat spots.

 

Are you considering trying it as a noboard?

There is a hotel at Teine station, but you're best to stay in Central Sapporo. Bus leaves Sapporo station at 8.30, get to highland just before 9. Then at night you have all Susukino to keep you happy :) out at Teine you'd have a much quieter time. There are izakayas etc near Teine station but the choice is limited. It's only 20-30 mins into Central Sapporo

From the Rusutsu/Teine owners office right in front of Sapporo station.....if you have a season pass it's 500yen....you have to book it the day before online. Or you could just take the train to Teine and get the local bus but that's a bit more expensive.

Teine Express staying at Art Hotel anyone stayed there or used this bus it seems like the same one that stops at Kamori Building 3, Kita-4 Nishi-4, Chuo-ku, Sapporo, Is this the one you use TB?

Or what is the closest hotel to the Kamori Building? I can't find it on a map
