Q: How many tele skiers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: Five. One to screw it in and four to rave about how great the turn was.
Fourteener? I hardly knew her!

$255 for the FR+!!! Where the heck did you two score that deal? Didn't I see you with FR's (not FR+'s) on Castle in June? Did you have the FR+'s mounted on a different AT rig, or have you replaced the old bindings since then? I picked up mine a few months prior to seeing you guys, and I was quite proud of the $325 that I paid. At that time, the bindings were pretty new on the market, and hardly anyone had them for less than retail. Under $300 is crazy, and $255 is just nuts. Please tell me you were charged $125 for shipping and handling so I can sleep at night.

Yeah bought a new pair to throw on the Kilowatts this year. Bought them in the middle of july from Boulder ski deals who had like one pair left. But yeah 255, and about 10 for shipping. Hopefully there is some good late night television on, cause I was tellin the truth.

Why all the hate with the anti pinhead video? :D

I did find the carry the extra ice axe to hit snowboarders rather funny though!

Remember, "half the binding, twice the skill" :lol:

I'm not hating on tele... just having fun :-)

I wish I could have picked it up quicker, it's a great workout. The crashes just kept ruining my ski seasons!

Thanks for the advice and the very funny video. I decided on the Scarpa Spirit 4 Alpine Touring Boot and the Fritsche Freeride Plus Binding. Since I am now broke I will have to use some hand-me-down Atomic Skis. :?
