You want to go back-country skiing but you don't want to buy Randonnee/AT bindings, you want to use the same bindings as your downhill skis...you want to use your downhill skiis in the backcountry....well thanks to the new MFD Alltime Touring AT Binding system you can.
Much more elegant and sohpisticated then an Alpine Trekker, MFD Alltime is getting rave reviews by skiiers because it has the lowest-to-the-ground height of all high-DIN AT bindings (it's lower than the Fritschi Freeride and the Marker Duke), giving you the feel of a normal alpine binding and eliminating that awkward feeling of being too high off your skis.

MFD Inc., a local company based out of Salt Lake City launched the MFD Alltime in the Fall of 2011/2012. Jason Prigge the founder and creator of the MFD Alltime Binding worked for over 5 years to create the binding accessory that is literally changing the face of backcountry skiing. The response to the product in the ski world has been an overwhelming success:

For me the part of the system that I'm most excited for is the switch plates, you have multiple pairs of skis- now you have a fast easy way to switch your bindings from ski to ski so you no longer need multiple pairs of bindings. That is happiness. Locally you can buy this at Backcountry.com, The Sports Den, Cole Sport. You can also purchase directly from MFD Inc's website runmfd.com
