Backcountry skiing often involves less-than-ideal snow conditions. Inevitably at some point during the season, greasy skin-tracks are the rule rather than the exception. The Marker Pintech Crampons will make quick work of that grease. Further, when tacking big mountains without a nice skin-track, frozen icy faces and supportable bullet-proof crusts can be daunting. If it’s too slick to skin, and you’re breaking through the crust when booting, ski-crampons become the only logical choice. Dynafit-style receptors make installation on your Marker Alpinist or Kingpin bindings quick and painless.
