The 2022 Marker Alpinist 12 Ski Bindings is an ultra-lightweight pin touring ski binding that will change how you travel uphill. The Marker Alpinist 12 is here to make your uphill climb more manageable. Starting early in Big Cottonwood to get a tour in before work, you will want one of these killers on your ski to make the climb fast, so you have plenty of time to lap those freshies before you clock into the 9-5. These come in at just 245 grams without brakes. We highly recommend picking one of these up before they are gone, and you are stuck at home sleeping instead of making fresh turns with your friends.
