Why We Provide This List
We believe that educated, active, informed and involved enthusiasts are the way to grow the sport.
We believe that a healthy market for used equipment will engage millions of people who otherwise can’t afford to ski.
We believe the volunteer at the municipal rope tow should be able to find out immediately if the bindings on the donated skis are indemnified.
Apparently most manufacturers and retailers disagree. So, they refuse to make this information available to the public. I call foul. Shame on the ski manufacturing and ski retailing community for this. I can’t think of any healthy, growing sport for which the supply chain so actively tries to make that sport unapproachable for the common man. Alpine skiing participation, on the other hand, is flat. In fact the number of participants has fallen dramatically over the past half century. I say the manufacturers and retailers are helping to kill the very sport from which they earn their livelihood, the sport that we love.
So despite their efforts to keep you in the dark, here’s the list for 2016-2017.
Remember that the ultimate determination of whether or not a shop will work on a binding is the opinion of the technician. This list is provided ONLY to show which bindings the manufacturers are still supporting through liability indemnification.

Note about “Final Season”: Salomon has been known to list bindings as “final season,” the prolong the indemnification for yet another season. The last dozen or so in both of the final season lists above were listed the same way last year, so they are likely indeed in the final “final season.”
More about Salomon: According to their website, Salomon says: “Older models of Salomon bindings no longer on the Schedule of Indemnified Bindings may still be serviced, however Liability Indemnification will not be offered by Salomon for these models of bindings. Dealers wishing to service these models of bindings can reduce their liability risk by requiring an additional waiver and release agreement and attaching it to the Workshop Form. Such waivers should be reviewed by a dealer’s own legal counsel to ensure compliance with applicable laws.
Salomon bindings are not designed or tested for use with Mono Boards, therefore bindings mounted on Monoboards will not be indemnified.

Binding FAQs — Read this BEFORE you use the list.
Q: And what is indemnification?
A: In short, it means the manufacturer will “support” the certified technician in the event of legal action. That’s all.
Q: Does indemnification mean that a binding is definitely usable?
A: No. See question #1 immediately above.
Q: Does non-indemnified mean that the binding is no longer usable?
A: Not necessarily. It just means you do so completely and totally at your own risk.
Q: Why should I care if a binding is still indemnified?
A: Because if you buy skis with non-indemnified bindings, you probably won’t find a shop willing to adjust them for you. If you do find a shop that will work on old bindings, they will make you sign a hold harmless form. Aside from that, non-indemnified bindings tend to be older. Moisture, freezing, thawing…a lot of things going on inside the bindings, and it all relies on spring performance. Even if the skis were stored in a humidity controlled environment, do you want to trust your knee to a spring that has been compressed for 15 years?
Q: What if a binding is listed but the shop won’t work on it?
A: That’s their right. If a binding appears to be damaged, corroded, or otherwise hinky, the technician may still refuse to work on it.
Q: What if a binding is on this list but turns out NOT to be indemnified?
A: We made a mistake, or something changed. Again, you use this at your own risk, as a general guide. Check with your a professional ski technician before you do anything.
Q: What if a binding is indemnified but I still tear my knee apart?
A: Fate can be a fickle friend. You ski, and you use this information at your own risk. Sorry about the knee.
Also remember that the “indemnification” is only that of the manufacturer willing to back the certified retailer, not when you or I install our own bindings or screw around with settings.
The Ultimate Determination of whether or not a shop will work on a binding is the opinion of the technician. This list is provided ONLY to show which bindings the manufacturers are still supporting through liability indemnification.
Now, all that being said, some ski shops may indeed work on non-indemnified equipment. When they do, they will ask you to sign something that says this:
I have requested this shop to service, mount or adjust ski equipment that is old, obsolete or which otherwise fails to meet current industry standards or manufacturer recommendations. THIS SHOP HAS WARNED ME NOT TO USE THIS EQUIPMENT AS IT MAY INCREASE MY RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH WHILE SKIING, BUT I HAVE DECLINED TO FOLLOW THIS SHOP’S RECOMMENDATIONS. I understand and agree that MY USE OF THIS EQUIPMENT MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF MY BEING INJURED as a result of an inadvertent release or a non-release of the ski/binding/boot system or from some other cause. This shop has recommended that this equipment be replaced with a current model, which incorporates improvements as to safety, performance and reliability, and I have declined to follow that advice. I AGREE TO ASSUME ALL RISKS of injury or death that may result from this course of action.
As an express condition of having the shop service this equipment, I also agree to DEFEND, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS, as well as to RELEASE FROM ANY LIABILITY, this shop, as well as all manufacturers and distributors of this ski equipment, and all of their agents and employees, for any injuries, damages or legal obligations that may arise from any person’s use of this equipment. This agreement is legally binding upon me and upon my heirs and assigns, and shall be enforced to the fullest extent allowed by law. It is not intended to assert any claims or defenses which are prohibited by law, however, and if any part of this agreement is deemed unenforceable, all other parts shall be given full force and effect. Some states limits the use or legal effect of liability releases, and the specific rights of the parties may vary from state to state.
If this equipment is used by someone other than me, I certify that I am acting on my behalf and as agent for the user and that I will provide this form and all warnings and information to the user.
I HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREED TO THE TERMS OF THIS WARNING, LIABILITY RELEASE, INDEMNITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT.
Is that so bad? If you find someone willing to work on your ancient bindings, just sign the thing.
