I just want to say "I Love Japan". The People ,culture, and especially the snow and Mountains. I went over to Japan this year to Visit Burton Japan trade show and Talk some product with the Japanese Retailers. I also was very lucky to get to go up to a local Resort and get some seriously good snow. It continues to blow me away that people there don't ride in the Trees. You can go up at 3 pm in the Afternoon and find all the Pow Pow you want. Untracked Tree Riding in Japan is some of the best in the World. I Rode the Landlord 59 for the first day, then switched to the Pile Driver 40 and was absolutely blown away with that board. It is made for riding the trees in Pow.
