||I have a GNU Park Pickle with M9-SE bindings and I love it. I have a size 11 foot and I have size Large Bindings, but size 12 would probably not fit. They are heavier than normal bindings but i like them much more for speed and easy of entry. Sierra will get more in stock, they are a rip off in Aus, i didnt even bother looking when i bought mine. If you dont need them till next season wait till the end of season sale in America and pick some up cheap then. Thats about feb/march here in Aus.

||I am only on the learning curve of buttering. Its not easy and you wont get it instantly. You have to coordinate yourself enough to not catch an edge. Everyones ideas of doing on flat is good. I think a lot of it comes from the first ollie or press. Once those are down work on 180s and other spins.

||Have you tried going up the t-bar with a skier on the other side of you for stability. Just get a skier to jump on with you normally and you can use both them and their ski to keep your board from moving too much.Thats how i learnt to t-bar and now i can do it on my own.Good Luck.

||I vote for no stomp pad. Just clean off the board of all the snow and then the grip on your boot should be enough to hold in on the board. Thats what i do.

||Eternalsnow.com is another website. I bought some boots off them but they were more expensive than sierra. But sierra didn't have my size. What you need is a friend in the US who you can send stuff to and have them repackage and send it to you. That often works out pretty cheap.

||I have a pair of K2 Darko Conda Boas and they pretty awesome. Best of both worlds. Boa for the locking in of your ankle and laces so you dont look too lazy. The boa is quick, and highly adjustable when you are out on the mtn. Its the way of the future.

||The one thing i always wear is a helmet. Go out and spend some money on a Giro or a Red helmet, so many people wear them that it cant be homosexual Almost all instructors in Australia have to wear them now. When you fall backwards you often smack your hear on the ground, i have been saved by my helmet a few times now. Better than concussion or a cracked skull.Also, you can now get gloves with inbuilt, and hidden, wrist guards.If you choose to not wear a helmet your choice, but don't expect much sympathy when you tell them everyone told you so.
