Trend Report

Harder, better, faster, stronger - and just plain cooler. If it's been awhile since you visited a ski shop, here's what you're missing.

Tour de Force

For someone used to traditional alpine gear, the problem with alpine-touring (AT) bindings and boots was always that they felt flimsy. Now Marker’s Duke, a sturdy, tour-capable binding, is winning converts to AT. And boot brands that previously specialized in upright, lightweight touring boots are offering beefed-up versions that, while tour-capable (if a little heavy), give the alpine skier (like the guy with the Duke binding) the support he’s used to. Examples: Garmont’s Endorphin and Scarpa’s Hurricane (above, $699).
