I’ll have to tell you later about the 12th century church I was checking out in Alpbach today, and the story about the guy we saw caught in an avalanche will have to wait as well (he survived). After climbing about 5,000 vertical feet and skiing a nice peak above Alpbach, we headed back to the Barthel’s, where I spent some time with Fritz in his workshop, getting the detailed lowdown on how Dynafit bindings were invented. A few photos and comments below, more later as always, including Fritz’s attempt at a Dynafit telemark binding.
For additional details about this binding please check it out in our backcountry skiing binding museum.
