Is this a fashion column?


You people sound worse than those chicks down on Shibuya-dori checkin' themselves out in the mirror.


The question is...do you know how to use any of that sh-t!

No, it's not a fashion column it's just people sharing ideas about what equipment they use on the slopes. Pretty relevant if you ask me.

Lots of annoying skating in Niseko, so step-in bindings save heaps of time.


Clear, yellow or light coloured lenses also help to see in the usually poor light.

don, not sure about the demolition of gloves... maybe from carrying a board.... i destroyed a pair on a rope tow once.


simon, sory cant agree with the levels, i bought a pair and 6 days later they were in bits... dunno maybe they were a bad batch or something. then bought a pair of burton mits 3 seasons ago and havnt looked back, never get wet or anything.

I`m not really a fashion type boarder that buys new gear every season. Currently I ride a Burton Supermodel 181 and this season I`ve also got a Burton BMC 168 which I bought specifically so I could re-teach myself riding switch/fakie. I tried a bit of switch on the 181 but it was too difficult to swing around. I`ve heard the BMC are pretty light in weight and being Burtons latest material compositions , it should be a bit of fun. As for riding Niseko tree runs, the 181 has been the best. Very good for landing jumps of any size, well with having all that contact area you could see why. In groomed snow it was excellent as well the contact edge is long , so holding a rail in hard snow was the next best thing to my other race board. A buddy of mine , Zeke Steggel gave me a signature 175 race board to use in Australia, a little hard to use coming off softboot board but fun for speed.

I like my Burton stepins, their simple, much faster than the straps giving more time in the pow. Goggle wise I use Oakley A-frames. I`ve had the icing up feature on the inside and outside of the lens, and it only happens in extreme temps of Niseko. Never had any ice-up in Aust just in Japan, although this year I`ve found these little shammy cloth goggle clearers, so I`m hoping these will do the trick.

Thats the only problem I have in Japan, the bloodly ice-up goggle problem.. If I can get this fixed then I`ll really be laughing.

Anyone else had the ice-up feature?
