So, I recently purchased some STH 14s for my powder skis. I skied them a total of two times, opening day, and the day after, in Revelstoke. On the last run of the second day, I found a nice little 3 ft drop (that I didn't see) which ended in a large hole which I didn't have enough speed to clear, creating an uphill landing. After the rather light crash, I discovered this had happened. I am about 6' 5", weight somewhere between 180-230 pounds, and had my DIN at 10, front and back.
Now, I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures, but I have four questions about this rather unfortunate, and long hike causing event.
1) What, in your opinion, is the probable cause of this breakage?
2) Have you ever witnessed, heard of, fixed or read about this kind of breakage in this binding before?
3) If (Or rather, when) I get warranty, what is the chance that these bindings break again?
4) Is the damage to my ski caused by the screw being ripped out repairable without remounting in a different location? (I realize that I probably haven't provided enough information to answer this one, so I will post more if it is needed, as long as someone specifies what is needed, seeing as I have no clue.)
Oh, and sorry if this is in the wrong location, I have never posted here before, but I have been reading these forums for quite a while.
