Blizzard Peacemaker to be mounted with Tyrolia Adrenalin Bindings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Just ordered the Blizzard Peacemakers and a set of Tyrolia Adrenalin 13 bindings . any suggestions on mounting and where could I get the mounting specs?  I'm using a local ski shop that probably does not have experience or maybe even the template for this binding/ski set up.  So I would like to go into the situation knowing a little about the how to  way so I can make sure it's done correctly.  The skis are 172 and the bindings are the 13's.

Thanks.

Those bindings come with a template, should be no problem for them to mount. Only oddity of mounting those binders is that the rear most holes should be drilled with a shorter bit (7.5)

Did you speak with the shop you ordered them from?  We do complimentary mounts, don't know about other online shops, but I would suspect the shop you got them at could help you with that.

The template is easy, but we have a jig, as it is a pretty popular binding.  If you have the template and the correct drill bit and tap, you might as well do it yourself!  Just use a spotter to make sure you are drilling perpendicular to the topsheet! 

 

Curious: why did you choose the Peacemaker over the Kabookie or Scout for AT?

I was looking to stay with a similar size and style to my favorite all mtn ski, k2 obsethed.  seemed like the peacemaker was close.  I'm a sucker for new products, ya it's a chance I'm willing to take.  Plus I like to switch ski every now and then so I wanted a twin tip. I will be using this ski as an everyday ski a lot it, if I like it.  and then of course for some BC trips.  I read a lot of reviews for the peacemaker and I keep seeing "playful", "fun" and "charger" used so that kinda sold me too.  Price didn't hurt either.

 

I think I will mount the bindings myself- could you tell me exactly what tools I would need as far as the drill bits, stops and spotter?  or maybe there is a utube video?

I guess they are all twin tips, I did look at the scout pretty hard, kabookie had a litter smaller waist than I wanted.
