im heading across the pond with two pairs of skis. i need to find the most efficient way to bring them over. here's some scenarios i've thought out, just wondering what NS would do.
1 - one pair of bindings for both skis, install inserts. this seems like the most logical. cheap, low profile to pack and saves me from buying a second pair of bindings. my main problem with this is that i DO NOT want to be fucking around with tools on the mountain tightening the screws every few runs.
2 - buy two bindings, drill the holes here (free) and then hand screw the bindings on once im there (also free). once again, low profile and ill have a solid mount once im there. i can't think of any problems here, i would just fill the holes with something temporary while travelling.
3 - buy two bindings and have them mounted here and then bring them over. the only advantage is that i could mount them myself, i imagine travelling with the bindings mounted rather than a flat ski can cause some problems, especially with two pairs.
4 - bring both skis and bindings over and have them mounted there.
so far im leaning towards 1 or 2. i just really don't want to have to fuck with inserts while skiing, and id have next to no use for them once over there and at home. i know my snowboard bindings get loose after a single run in the back foot, given it is a super soft board and the mechanics are obviously different but still. i may also post this in the quiver killer thread cause its turned into a thread about inserts...
