“Being able to be up in the alpine and look down at my line and drop in, is the greatest felling ever,” says Kris Delgado of 2nd Ave Sports in Durango, Colorado. “There’s nothing like skiing.”
But there is something like wrangling all the gear that goes with it, especially for skiers like Delgado, who sometimes leave the lifts behind for a little something more.
Today’s modern tech hybrid bindings like the Marker Kingpin offer skiers a quiver of one with a sharp ability to adjust on the fly from alpine touring to fully locked down. It’s changing the game for skiers who love the backcountry as much as resort skiing. Catching chairs and breaking trail all on the same rig is better than ever.
