AT bindings in the park?
ive spent my entire life living and skiing in new england, so when i was applying to colleges i took full advantage of the chance to ski a different (and better) part of the country. now that ill be spending the next 4 years in utah, i plan on using my current powder/touring skis (105mm under foot) as all mountain/park skis, and buying a pair of fatties for the really deep days. this begs the question, will the marker barons i have on my current powder skis hold up to abuse in the park? any advice is apprecated
-ski and let ski
if you dont go crazy on them they will hold up. but they will be heavy, so i would advise getting lighter bindings

If I were you I would get rossi fks for your current skis & use the barons for your next skis. barrons are heavy & disrupt the flex pattern of skis but are pretty much the best bc bindings you can get (them and the dukes) so yea, FKS for current skis and use your BC bindings for your next pair of skis
dukes/barons are prone to breaking when landing switch. They do not handle reverse sheer stress well.
skiing has lost touch with skiing

How long have you been a mod for??
They can break pretty easily compared to traditional freestyle bindings in the park
So long gay boys
No i highly recomend getting park bindings for them, i've heard several stories of those bindings breaking from using them in the park

I would say pick up a pair of park skis for cheap and keep those as your touring skis.
Then get a pair of fattys for the deep days.
