I'm going to be up in Fort McMurray this coming winter (January-April), working on some 16on-12off rotations so I'm packing my gear with me and hopefully can jump a cheap flight to the Rockies for one of my 12 day breaks. The missus will probably kill me but I haven't been west of Winnipeg since 2004.
I need a new board too. Mine is a 2000 ish model Solomon 450 which is awesome in ontario but sinks in powder. I'm good for boots and bindings (got nice boots a couple years ago, can't remember the brand), and flow fr-s pro bindings in white.
Gonna be a great winter!
