Swiss Military Skis - Bindings
« on: November 21, 2010, 02:24:33 pm »
Can anyone tell if the bindings on these skis (http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/used-swiss-mil-ski-set-with-bindings-2-poles-and-climbing-skins.aspx?a=170515) are 75mm/3pin or something else? They are evidently cable bindings that lock at the heel.

Seems like a good deal if they work with normal tele boots.

Hi KM,

I can't tell from the photo.  They might be pinless telemark bindings?

"I firmly believe that far from hurting the planet, the growing knowledge of Bushcraft is helping our natural world. When we employ bushcraft skills, it may seem as though we are consuming natural resources.  But of course, the more we learn about the trees, the plants, the animals around us, the more we respect them. The more we respect them, the more we cherish them, the more we nurture and take care of them. That is the underlying principle of Bushcraft.

They look like old plate bindings that might work with mountaineering boots. You can probably unlock the rear of the plate and it would hinge at the toe to allow a more natural walking motion similar to alpine touring bindings.
