I also emailed Marker to see if those bindings were on the indemnification list. I got an email back after the bindings had been adjusted saying that those bindings were no longer indemnified.
What does this mean for the skier? What does this mean for the ski shop that adjusted the non-indemnified binding?
I would look-up the list myself, if the indemnified list that the shop used was old and your binding was added this season find out for yourself. If this seasons list is published maybe Epic could make it available for it's members. The 2015 - 2016 season is here and it would be good if we had the latest information. We also can decide for our self if the list is any or all of the following:
1. A safety list for the consumer.
2. A marketing tool to sell more bindings.
3. A legal tool to protect the manufacture.
4. A guideline so people will at least test their equipment.
5. A recall list for defective product.
What testing devise was used by the shop if any after they adjusted your bindings? Are binding spec's available for your bindings and what are the tolerances for safety? See if you could get that for your bindings and if it passed a release check you can make an informed decision.
