My Skiing

Moved to Utah in 1979 and ski bummed at Snowbird for TOO long. But I quickly realized that untracked powder didn't exist long at the resorts and got my first Tele setup in 83. Been skiing backcountry since. Slow to the AT gear, but Skimo changed that. Style is slowly evolving from the Hippy powder turns to willing to open it up on occasion. Finally getting into touring in the Spring too.

My Gear

First AT setup is Spectres and Wailer 112 Pures with Radical ST 2.0. Heavy, but work very well at Alta on Powder days.
Now on Alien RS (size 26) Movement Alp Track 100 with Ski Trab Titan Vario.2.
Spring setup - Ski Trab Magico.2 171cm and Titan Vario.2 of course.

Rob, ATK does use the Dynafit style adapter. And they usually work. If you look, the pins that attach the mounting bar to the crampon, sometimes are a bit high, very little. Not an issue on Dynafit bindings, but can make it hard to slide in ATK. You can work it to get past that, or get an ATK crampon.

Justin, Yes they work with the old or current Phantom toe pieces. If the 130mm width is enough for your board. If you have the new toe, made by Salomon, then you can use the 145mm Plum crampon.
Olle, the Transalp would be a great choice to mount Tele. For a bigger guy and skiing inbounds, they are a pretty stiff and powerful ski. Read the review below. Also, most of the light skis we sell are not recommended to mount with Tele bindings, as they will pull out. This ski has a layer of metal through the center of the ski so would be one of the few to go Tele. The 98 and 105 are similar, other then a bit more width. If your 50% touring is mostly in powder, then the 105 could be the better choice...

Hi Bill, right now, that is it. More options then most boots have. Your bindings may have a lot of Ramp angle. Reducing that can help.
Cody, Appears so. I found - Sole.ID is Marker's most versatile binding platform. Sole.ID is compatible with Alpine, Touring, GripWalk and WTR boot soles. You just need to properly set the AFD plate. Note, Skimo does not sell any Alpine bindings.
