D-Day minus 27, 11 December 2015: Quick Release Bindings

Alterations to ski bindings

The manufacturer of our ski bindings, Rottefella, will be horrified with what we have done to their ski bindings…

We have added a “quick release” attachment, as an added safety precaution if you had to get the skies off your feet quickly. Especially when you are wearing thick mittens.

The fitting of the floating plastic balls attached by 2mm cord, was quite a fiddly job for Conrads big old fingers! However, this attachment has a few downsides re: it not offering such a great glide, but it has been brought up as a discussion point by IPGA (International Polar Guides Assocation), so we thought we would try it.
