Caught up with Geoff Curtis of Marker to check out the NEW Alpinist binding!


This past Outdoor Retailer/ S.I.A. show we were excited to not only see the new Alpinist binding on the showroom floor in Denver, but also get to ski it at Copper Mountain a couple of days later! The binding is lighter than the Dynafit speed and when skied on their super light, VTA88 ski, well, I felt like a World Cup slalom or G.S. skier 😉

Below are a few words from Marker in regards to the new Alpinist binding which will be available this September 2018.
Ultra light, extremely durable and with superior features in this weight class – the new Marker Alpinist touring binding for high alpine challenges.
