Salomon MTN Ski Touring Binding

Salomon's entry into the tech binding world shows that they have done their homework. This is a fully-featured binding that also cuts out the frills that we are seeing in some tech models, coming in under 300 grams with the optional brake installed.

Materials wise, the MTN is primarily metal, with very minimal amounts of high strength plastic. A full 30 mm adjustment range allows for multiple boots and even boot sizes if mounted with care. Flat, medium and high risers are easy to use aluminum. Furthermore, the MTN can be run like a race binding by not rotating the pins, allowing for quicker transitions with only medium and high risers.

There are three options for release value: women, men and expert. These relate roughly to 6, 8, and 11 but are probably better understood as light/casual skier, bigger/non-extreme skiers, and never-come-out skiers. Each binding comes with all three U springs that can be swapped with one simple screw. The toe unit is a standard machined-aluminum piece with a step-in guide, leash loop, crampon adapter, and locking polymide toe lever. The brake is an optional piece that is mounted under the heel unit.

If you love the features, but blue doesn't make your eyes pop, try the grey anodized Atomic Backland with the same features!

Salomon MTN Binding: simple, reliable, light

This is a simple, durable, light and quality binding. I have these mounted on a 95mm waist ski with brakes, and they have performed well for soft snow touring and variable ski mountaineering in Colorado and the Pacific Northwest. The "race style" heel allows for quick transitions and easy touring. The brake setup is one of the simplest and most functional for bindings for this weight, and allows for quick and efficient transitions. The heel "U" options also allow adjustments for skier weight and strength. This binding can drive larger skis in complex terrain should you be looking for that. Highly recommended.

Salomon MTN Ski Touring Binding

This is a solid-feeling binding with good retention; I initially took these out for a couple hard in-bounds days including steep variable snow, tight trees, and big icy bumps and I stayed locked in, no prereleases. The step in is easy, which is nice to have in tight situations. Paired these with Zero-Gs for a light and strong bc setup.

Salomon MTN

I was once a staunch Dynafit ski tourer, for 20 years. I wouldn’t ever buy anything else, especially after buying the Fristchi tech bindings and having tons of trouble with them. But the Salomon MTNs are another story. They are light, simple in their design and look, easy to use, and retention is excellent. I am all salomon MTN now. Love them.


I have a few days on these now and they are quickly becoming my favorite backcountry binding ever- they have every feature I want, and nothing I don't. Light, simple, strong, easy to use, fast and easy transitions. They just have to prove their durability over the next few years and they'll be perfect.

I loved the uphill set up! Everything fit me perfectly! You and your team were so helpful and patient with me! Even giving me a brief tutorial before I skinned up the mountain at the base. Myself and my family will continue to purchase through Cripple Creek for all of our mountain gear! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! I love my new sport of uphill skiing :)
