Silvretta Binding Questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I just dug a pair of Bluehouse skis out of my parents basement and I really want to use them. They're currently mounted with a pair of Silvretta Pure Freeride bindings of undetermined year. I have pretty small feet and I'm at the extent of the screw and still too big. Is it possible to buy bigger screws or will mediums just never fit? Should I seek the Silvrettas and remount something else? I would love to ski on them as soon/ cheaply as possible.

The Silvrettas weren't that good in their day and given the binding options available now, they should be retired.  Get new touring bindings.

Wild Snow is the place to go. Medium fits boots 300mm to 340.

 

They can be shortened. Lots a work.

They may have some reliability issues

Just sell the whole setup.

At least then the OP would have some money ($50?). But no skis or binding to play with.

Shitty binding, shitty ski. If they fit his boots it would be one thing, but why waste your time, labor and quite possibly a lot of money, trying to turn it into a good AT setup.
Just sell it and start over.

I would have gone for that as my first setup if it had fallen into my hands for FREE like the OP. But then I would have been 62 and lived where I could ski out the back door for a 2 mile tour that would gain 95' vert.  on a drumlin. It all depends on who and where you are in the universe. When I was 16 I tried to make a tandem from two bicycles without the ability to weld. Never worked but I learned some and built a motorcycle to race two years later. Others that are rich and rad from the git-go might go a different route.
