21 Best Alpine Tourings in 2019

 

Plum Tech Bindings Race 99 Alpine Touring Binding
Plum Tech Bindings Race 99 Alpine Touring Binding
Plum Tech Bindings Race 99 Alpine Touring Binding - Due to their feather light construction, plum only recommends these bindings for competitions and training. Crafted with a single piece of lightweight aluminum and a titanium fork, these bindings are all about efficiency on the uphill. Depending on the mounted position of the heelpiece, the lateral release can be set to either 6 or 8, and the heel riser helps you out when slope angle increases. You’re all about speed, and when you’re duking it out with your fellow lycra-clad uphillers, you can’t afford any extra weight on your body. Weighing in at just 99 grams per foot, the plum race 99 alpine touring bindings are the lightest metal tech binding available.

 

Salomon MTN  Leash Alpine Touring Binding
Salomon MTN + Leash Alpine Touring Binding
Salomon MTN + Leash Alpine Touring Binding - Another unique feature with salmon’s mtn + is the wider screw integration that enhances energy transmission on the downhill. Its classic u spring design holds three different release values to keep things safe for beginners still learning how to turn, and keep expert skiers attached to their planks as they reach mach speeds. This binding comes with leashes to further decrease weight but still keep your skis close after yard sales. Weighing under two pounds per pair, salomon’s mtn + leash alpine touring binding is certainly a minimalist that best suits gram-counting backcountry skiers, but unlike most tech bindings, the mtn + has variable release ratings to better suit an array of downhill skiers ranging from beginners to intermediates. As for the uphill, this binding has two heel lifters to help you tackle the steeps. These lifters face opposite than most to prevent falling down when you’re half-way up the mountain.

 

Salomon Guardian MNC 16 Alpine Touring Binding
Salomon Guardian MNC 16 Alpine Touring Binding
Salomon Guardian MNC 16 Alpine Touring Binding - Salomon made a few tweaks to this year’s iteration of the guardian to improve on its now legendary downhill performance. Well, salomon worked that out by making the binding multi norm certified, so it will now accommodate everything from your alpine boot to lugged at boot. When you venture into the backcountry to slay steep and committing lines, you want a binding that is going to hold you to your ski when you’re picking up speed and taking big airs. One of the big complaints about previous versions of the guardian was its boot compatibility. With a burly din range of 7-16, the guardian will hold big skiers tight when they’re taking big airs and charging down big lines in variable conditions. A reduced stand height, an oversized chassis, and the u power toe all come together to increase power transmission to the ski, as well as lateral power transmission, making these bindings an ideal clamp for girthy big mountain boards. The salomon guardian mnc 16 alpine touring binding is a huck-able binding with din values that won’t pre-release at the worst possible time. The hike and ride switch allows for quick transitions from walk to ski mode without having to take off your ski, while the easily lifted heel elevators help make your climb a whole lot easier.

 

Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding BlackSilver 90mmS
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 90mm/S
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 90mm/S - The addition of multi-norm compatibility (mnc) means it’s compatible with most alpine, touring, and wtr boot soles. The aluminum double tubes have been strengthened for a burlier ride, the stand height checks in at a low and precise 26mm, and the easily-adjustable toe piece makes getting the fit and release settings right a cinch. It skis like an alpine binding, with a rugged u power toe,oversized platform, and a din that goes to 13, but it’ll get you up to to those backcountry lines you want to ski too, thanks to the 90-degree toe pivot, flat nose, and hike-and-ride switch that can be operated while you’re still locked into the binding. There are a few changes to this year’s version of the tracker. The tracker certainly isn’t as light and fast as a tech binding, but if you’re more interested in short tours, big lines, and all-mountain versatility than long approaches and techy skiing, then it will definitely get the job done. Atomic even simplified the base plate to prevent icing and snow buildup, so you’ll spend less time fiddling with your bindings and more time shredding. With the retention and release of a traditional alpine binding and touring performance that’s downright shocking, the atomic tracker 13 alpinetouring binding can handle just about anything you might want to ski this winter. That’ll save you from having to invest in multiple boots to fit all your bindings, but it doesn’t affect the reliable release and retention of the tracker.

 

Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot
Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot
Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot - Coupled with the moldable lace-up liner, this gives the transalp a level of unprecedented customization, so you can kiss hot-spots, slop, and pain goodbye for good. Just heat the shell up, just like you would a liner, stick it on, buckle it up, and let it cool–the vacu-plast material will expand and then contract to the shape of your foot, improving fit, performance, and comfort. The shell is designed to complement the position our feet tend to take (fischer calls its ergonomic design features v-position and on-center position), for increased control and comfort, and it has a ski/walk lever that offers a killer 53 degrees of fore-aft rotation for easy skinning. Three x-lite aluminum buckles pull your foot into the shell without pinching, and a 40mm touring power strap beefs up the relatively mild 115 flex, so the boots don’t get overwhelmed if you’re driving wider skis. Comfortable, mobile, and reasonably skiable touring boots aren’t big news anymore, but just because something’s been around for a while doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. An adjustable rear spoiler lets you play with the transalp’s 13-degree forward lean, and a grippy vibram sole makes icy walks, rock scrambling, and parking lot detours a little bit less sketchy. Of course, all the fit technology in the world won’t make a good boot all on its lonesome, so fischer made sure the rest of the transalp was on point, too. Heat-moldable liners are pretty much standard issue these days, but fischer’s transalp vacuum ts lite alpine touring boot takes things a step further with its heat-moldable shell, which allows you to dial in a personalized fit that even grinding, punching, and padding won’t give you.

 

Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot Yellow 260
Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot Yellow, 26.0
Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot Yellow, 26.0 - When you’re locked in ski mode, the alien’s propulsion tech system ensures that the cuff remains stiff, giving you all the power and edge grip you need to handle the steep and icy sections that are part of every serious ski descent. Not many boots can boast a micro-adjustable boa closure system, but the alien uses it to secure the foot smoothly and evenly, completely eliminating pressure points and dead spots. Your feet will also dig the hrp intuition liner, which is instantly comfortable and offers superb touring performance in any conditions, as well as the ufo vibram sole (also recently received from our space friends) which cushions shocks and provides top-notch traction in all kinds of terrain. Of course, what’s most important about a lightweight, race-bred touring boot is its uphill performance. The alien’s most distinguishing feature is the fit. Scarpa also gave the alien a quick step-in system, which uses indicators and self-guiding notches to make it easy to step into your tech bindings, even in snowy spots. Fresh from our friends on alpha centauri (sick mountains there, check ’em out if you haven’t), the scarpa alien alpine touring boot splits the difference between full-blown rando racing boot and hardcore tourer, with a nylon/carbon shell and cuff that are plenty light enough to crush the skin track while still handling their business on steep faces and in shotgun couloirs. The alien has a 2-piece construction that locks into ski mode and opens with a single a-light buckle, providing 60 degrees of uphill-touring power and variable degrees of forward lean between 9 and 13 degrees for the way down.

 

Salomon MTN  Brake Alpine Touring Binding
Salomon MTN + Brake Alpine Touring Binding
Salomon MTN + Brake Alpine Touring Binding - Another unique feature with salmon’s mtn + is the wider screw integration that enhances energy transmission on the downhill. Its classic u spring design holds three different release values to keep things safe for beginners still learning how to turn, and keep expert skiers attached to their planks as they reach mach speeds. As for the uphill, this binding has two heel lifters to help you tackle the steeps. These lifters face opposite than most to prevent falling down when you’re half-way up the mountain. This binding comes with brakes to further assist in safety and convenience. Weighing under two pounds per pair, salomon’s mtn + brake alpine touring binding is certainly a minimalist that best suits gram-counting backcountry skiers, but unlike most tech bindings, the mtn + has variable release ratings to better suit an array of downhill skiers ranging from beginners to intermediates.

 

Fischer Tour Race Alpine Touring Binding
Fischer Tour Race Alpine Touring Binding
Fischer Tour Race Alpine Touring Binding - Plus, at only eight ounces per pair, the race tour is one of the lightest bindings on the market that meets ismf racing standards.

The toe piece is fitted with a front lever and small nylon bearing, resulting in ultra-smooth transitions between walk and ski mode. Needless to say, the tour race binding is an exciting new offering from fischer, which is built for the gram-counting ski mountaineer. Fischer has entered the alpine touring game with a full line of gear that runs the gamut from heavy freeride touring gear to ultralight ski mountaineering equipment. The bottom line’ an ultralight binding with a simplistic design to trim time from your transitions and make your touring experience as simple as possible.

Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding White/Black, S/130mm
Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding White/Black, S/130mm - With retention that’s virtually identical to trusted alpine clamps, the guardian has a din that can be cranked all the way up to 13, so you won’t worry about stepping out of your bindings in sketchy areas, and a sliding afd and u power toe piece for consistent lateral and twisting release and reliable power transfer. The double full flex baseplate and burly aluminum tubes provide a flex-free platform, so you don’t feel like you’re floating independently of your skis, and the low-profile chassis keeps you close to the snow for increased control and a natural feel. Of course, all this would be for naught if the guardian was a pos on the way up. When you need bomber skiing as well as solid skinning, an alpine-inspired at binding like the salomon guardian mnc 13 binding is where it’s at. The uphill ease of a tech binding counts for a lot, but sometimes the smooth skinning isn’t worth the occasionally questionable performance on the way down. Even better, the guardian uses salomon’s mnc (multi-norm compatible) system, which means it’ll work with traditional alpine boots, at boots with rubber soles, salomon’s wtr boots, and even some tech boots, so you don’t have to buy extra gear to access your dream line. A single flip-up climbing bail provides heel elevation for steeper ascents. Luckily, it isn’t, with features like a flat nose that pivots 90 degrees for a natural stride and an easy hike & ride switch that can be activated without stepping out of the binding.

Scott Superguide Carbon GTX Alpine Touring Boot
Scott Superguide Carbon GTX Alpine Touring Boot
Scott Superguide Carbon GTX Alpine Touring Boot - Scott designed the superguide for the skier that would rather ski boilerplate in the backcountry, rather than shell out three bills to stand in lift lines for nearly an hour just to ski elbow-to-elbow with tourists and park rats. You and your scott superguide carbon ski boots have a bright future filled with powder-filled tours and big, backcountry descents. Scott has been producing some serious backcountry boots ever since the company acquired garmont a few years back, but with a gore-tex liner, carbon inlays, and an aggressive 125 flex, the superguide is anything but a rehash of old garmont designs. Skiing in the backcountry means you’ll be spending about 90 percent of your time going up, so the 60-degree cuff rotation will be a welcome companion when you’re setting an efficient skintrack.
