10cm of fresh snow today at Grand Montets. A bit misty but still good skiing. First day on my new skis - K2 Coomback 104 with Marker F10 Tour bindings. First impressions are extremely positive. The ski was stable on the piste and at speed, as well as quick and responsive in the trees. It held really well on steep hard snow and on the chopped up crud.
I was pleased with the ease of use of the F10 binding. I have used low-tech bindings and lots of different models of Fritschi bindings but never Marker. They are easy to use for touring and feel great for skiing. Thanks to the guys at Concept Pro in Chamonix (opposite the Aiguille du Midi lift) for good advice and great service.
