I am excited to see you will be at Taos for the mini gathering. We have never met, but I have read some of your posts from your Japan ski trips. I travel to Japan occasionally for work, but I have never skied there. I want to try it now that I have learned about it from your posts and from @Mattadvproject's posts. I look forward to meeting you in Taos and learning more about skiing in Japan.
Hehehe, I have mine still but pulled the alpine and replaced with AT bindings. Was thinking I just bring and leave them in Sapporo next time but got an amazing powder day on them April 2020 near Alpine Meadows!!!
