    *chuckle* I don't feel so guilty for my recent purchases now

    So far in a month I've got myself -

    Avalanche kit (Pack, Beacon, Probe & Shovel)
    Skins
    Beanie
    Grenade Gloves x 2

    To get list -
    Board x 2
    Boots
    Goggles
    Jacket (maybe)

    I wonder what I'll end up with after Japan this month.
    Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

    Dump Volkl AC3 (too close to Stockli Stormrider XL). Looking for a good home, open to offers.

    Additions for 2008:

    1. Stockli Laser SC or SG. Need (want?) a dedicated ski for running gates;

    2. Light weight AT ski for touring (possibly a Stockli Pit Pro, Atomic Sugar Daddy....); and

    3. A genuine pow ski for Kamchatka in 2009. Possibly a Volkl Gotama.

    Off-loading the AC3 and binning the Salomon Axendo 8 will keep the quiver of skis to 6.

    I'd love to get a pair of Stockli Stormrider XXL's. I'm a bit torn between those and another pair of Public Enemy's. Just depends where I want to go with my skiing I guess.

    Oh and possibly a new jacket for me. Ez Power is going to get a whole new setup - skis, boots, poles...the works.

    Buy an extra set so you'll have one for every day of the week.

    Took the Elan 888 Alu to Canada.. possibly the best in bound Pow ski on the market. VERY impressed. The western Canada Ski patrollers kept stoping me to check them out!

    Thinking of getting the new Ingemar Stenmark designed Elans to replace the Speedwaves

    POC Skull Light XP Helmet

    Can't comment of the PE's but the XXL's is an excellent ski (possibly my favourite). A very good option for an Oz off-piste ski as it has just enough float in the deep, bashes crud and sastrugi without being deflected and has excellent edge hold on ice. Fred Guyer (Stockli in Jindabyne) had a pair for demo last year. Definately give them a try.

Whenever I go past there I can see them there, staring back at me, saying 'Buy me! Buy me!'

    How do you think they would go in an AT setup? Not too heavy?

    I had mine mounted with Freeride +, now replaced with Dukes. Although I took them to BC-SIC in September, they are a slack country rig as they are too heavy for serious touring (unless of course you are uber fit).

    Need (want)

    new skis (around 75-80 mm under foot)

    New board (option redline me thinks)

    New board boots

    Bought a shinny new jacket in Japan for some reason :whistle: so that's all good but could do with a new shell only.
    How many days till it snows again?

    Sounds good to me. I'm not a serious tourer, and I'm not uber fit by any means!

    Thanks for the tips [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Is Rapie the name of a shop or an area in Japan?

    Thanks Bear. I dont remember it but it has been a while since we were in Hakuba. I also remember having an enjoyable time having to hire things in Hakuba when we went there. Was when we first started skiing and had to hire clothes. We ended up in a Black, and a Purple one piece suit they scrapped up from some random store on the other side of town.
    Still have the photos to prove it but will never post on here!!!

    The start of '08 has been good to me gear wise, my fav would have to be the Buron T6 with Burton CO2 bindings. Closely followed by the Public Enemy 174 skis and Rossi Bandit boots.

    Lots of other goodies were added to the list in Japan.
