I got an email from a guy saying he had a pair of Marker M-Tour bindings that would fit well in the WildSnow collection. I emailed back and said “sure, we need those, how much for shipping? Reply: “I live two blocks from you, I’ll bring ’em over!” Sheeesh, at least some things in life are easy. (Note, later we received another donation of these bindings, in new condition, that we’ve stored away, thanks goes to Richard for the additional donation.)
Check out our Marker M-Tour museum display.
With the advent of Marker’s n Duke binding finally providing a touring binding that is also a full-on alpine downhill binding, it’s interesting to see what came before from the German ski binding company. Not only is the M-Tour a beefy binding with step-in step-out, but it also has a fore/aft adjustment for your boot position in relation to the ski. As far as I know no other consumer AT bindings have that feature (perhaps a few demo bindings do).
