Would really appreciate some input. I demo'd some Rossignol S3's last season and really liked the ski. I was in a bargain store here in Oklahoma City and they had equipment from the mudslides in Colorado. I picked up a new pair of Rossignol S3's and Marker baron bindings (not mounted). When I took them in to be mounted at the only shop in OKC, they told me they were AT binding. Also, the back mounting plates are missing. Should I try to get the back plates or are they hard to get? Or, should I return. I would be willing to trade for a lighter equivalent in a non-AT binding. I only ski about 8-10 days a year and don't have a need for the AT binding. thanks.

Yep, the Baron bindings are AT bindings, but will accept normal alpine boots. My wife has a pair she skis exclusively inbounds with, while I used mine for AT skiing.
I'm assuming the missing pieces are the tracks that attach to the ski and into which the rear binding slide into in order to lock them down - as opposed to when it's not locked and can hinge up for skinning up hill. You do need those pieces to make the bindings work for you, but I don't know if Marker sells them separately.
If you don't plan on ever doing any AT skiing, then I'd find some other bindings and mount those on the S3.
