Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

Marker Barron

 Poster: A snowHead

Could the marker barron randonee bindings be used for downhill ski as well, I'm looking for a set up that could do both downhill and touring, I was thinking of the k2 coombacks, with marker barrons, any opinions?

The Barons are essentially downhill bindings with a switch to let them hike. Calling them randonee is a bit misleading - they aren't brilliant on the up, heavy, with a fairly unnatural stride. Fine for hiking for an hour or two to get to a line, but you wouldn't want to do a properly long tour on them. As for downhill, they're great, I have them on two sets of skis, both used 80/90% of the time for downhill - I just like the flexibility of being able to skin if I see something pretty. IMV, this sort of use is what the Baron is best for.
