Go from the resort straight to the backcountry with the Salomon Guardian WTR 13L randonee bindings. They have the feel of alpine bindings, with the benefit of being able to tour in the backcountry.
You love getting those backcountry stashes of fresh powder and hucking your meat where no one has gone before (at least not today), so you don't have time for floppy, weak, clunky bindings that make you shiver and pray that won't pre-release on the downhill. Soothe your soul and nurture your daredevil self with the burly Salomon Guardian WTR 13 Alpine Touring Binding, a shred-worthy binding with backcountry capability. An allover low profile and wide platform give you sensitivity to terrain and enhanced power transmission. The Hike & Ride switch lets you go from skiing to hiking and back again without taking off your skis, because sometimes the skiing's that good. Height and wing adjustment for a secure hold and Salomon's legendary binding know-how give you peace of mind when you're scoping that gnarly, exposed line. The Guardian 16 and Guardian 13 top out Salomon's freeride backcountry lineup.
