OregonDeadHe is from CO where approaches are longer and he also does longer trips like in the Alps. But most people I know with Dynafits don't want to switch back to anything else. If I set up a touring rig I will probably just use it for 1/2 day trips most of which will start at the top of a chairlift. I boot to most of the places I want to go when the snow is firm but it'd be nice to have the same access when there is soft snow. IDK first world problems I guess.
I was in your same shoes man. I used my touring setup a bit, but not as much as I had intended, also didn't have a big enough group to go with, so I sold it. However it worked great for what I used it for. Sounds to me like a randonee binding would be good for you, but will you have friends going with you that have taking avy courses and know what they're doing?
