Thanks to Vintage Ski world, I’m excited to acquire this classic ski touring binding for the world-famous collection. The Vinersa is the direct precursor to the Salewa plate binding, which used a nearly identical design only with improved materials and mechanicals. Did you use this binding? Wondering if it’s real or a fantasy? Curious how it relates to the Eagles rock band? Please check out the museum display via linkage below, but leave comments here on this blog post.
(NOTE: History buffs, I’m planning on rearranging the museum page bindings in chronological order — thinking it should start with the earliest, i.e., ascending order. Opinions?)
