    Question to VXR / VXS owners

    I'm looking to import a VXS to canada - I was wondering if an existing owner could confirm the orgin if manufacture of the ski - not sure if it's like a sled and has a sticker somewhere.
    I want to confirm they are made in Georgia USA - so I won't have to worry about a duty charge when it comes to importing it.
    If anyone could snap a pic with your camera phone when they have a chance - that would be great! Thanks
    Eric

    Thanks - That's what I have read. - but can't find anything online from yamaha stating so 100% (just that they have a plant there)
    Are they labelled this anywhere on the ski?

    My Certificate of Origin says it came from a distributor in Nashville, TN. Signed by Yamaha USA in California. I am 600 miles from my VXS, so I can't tell you if there is a label on it.

    I wonder if my certificate of origin would say or not. If I was closer I would look.

    That tricky one may cost me an extra 9.2% in duty charges....
