You’ve just purchased new skis and bindings. Now what? Before you can race off to the slopes with your new gear, someone needs to mount your bindings onto your skis. At The Adventure Junkies, we’ll walk you through the steps on how to mount and adjust ski bindings.
With bindings, your safety is at stake. So, you’ll need to make an informed decision about how to proceed. If you are skilled and have the right tools, you can do it yourself.
If not, you’ll need a certified ski technician to do the work. Since you’ve also invested money in your equipment, you’ll want the bindings mounted and adjusted correctly.
DIY VERSUS SHOP MOUNTING
Mounting bindings onto skis requires know-how, skills and the right tools. If you don’t have all three, then you only have one option: go to a ski shop. This will cost you around $30 $60.
If you have purchased an entire ski package (skis, bindings and boots) from one shop, they’ll often throw in the mounting for a nominal fee or even for free.
