Ski Mountaineering often takes an individual to isolated peaks far from any established trailheads. To ensure the best chance of success, alpine starts (e.g., getting up waaaay too early) and lightweight gear can be the difference between getting there on time versus fifteen minutes too late and finding the route impassible (which as the kids say, “is a real bummer”). To address the gear variable, Grizzly created the Olympic binding, which is aimed at ski mountaineers seeking the security of an integrated ski brake without any unnecessary weight. And it sure appears that Grizzly nailed it. The judges agree as the Olympic took home an ISPO gold award when launched in 2020. Its aluminum 7075/stainless steel construction lends itself to durability while the intuitive Grizzly Step system helps make getting into the binding less frustrating. Whether you’ve been searching for an ultralight ski mountaineering binding or ISMF compliant race weapon, the Olympic binding will support your aspirations.

Questions & Reviews
I recently purchased this binding and the brake appears to be getting caught and not engaging the snow when I lift my boot off of the ski. Is there a way to adjust that?
It would be nice to have brakes
