Yes, could very well be. And I was wrong in my post way above - my BSL is actually 323.

No issues for me at a DIN of 10, but at 6'3" and 195 lbs, I can put some weight and leverage into the entry.

Haven't tried to put them on in bottomless powder yet, but yes, I imagine it could be a bitch. Of course, putting on bindings in bottomless powder is always a bitch.

Just thinking out loud, but I wonder if the Royal heelpiece might actually be an advantage in that situation? It's long enough that you could probably grab it to pull up and help lever the boot in? I've had to do that on other bindings, without much to grab onto. Just trying to see a silver lining here... smile.gif

My son and I both use marker jester bindings, are they harder to get into than others yes, but I have no problem. My son only weights 107lb and has no problem stepping into his skis.

Not just Marker. From the Salomon technical manual.

 

"With the boot in the binding (closed position), turn the Forward Pressure
Adjustment Screw either clockwise or counter-clockwise, until the top of the
screw head aligns with the back of the heel track (Fig. H) or heel housing"
 

This is for models with screw adjustment. Tab models require the boot to be out of the binding.

I had to walk down a ways in some powder to find a spot to step into my Griffons the other day.
