Binding release question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I skied Cannon today. (At least I think it was Cannon, it was sunny and warm in the morning and there were lift lines, so I thought that I may have gotten lost, but the signs said "Cannon.")
In any case, I was skiing one of the blacks on my AC3's with the Marker piston when someone cut in front of me. I thought I was paying attention, but maybe I missed him or maybe he was out of control. Don't know. In any case, I went down and as I was sliding to a stop, I swung my skis in front of me and promptly got back up on my feet. I then continued the steep decent, but on my next turn, my downhill ski separated from my boot. The next step was ugly as my boot did not glide as well as the remaining ski (apparently, I need to wax the soles of my boots if this is to continue),and I once again headed downhill on my back.
Any thoughts on what happened? Is this what one calls 'prerelease' or was the ski that was to leave me not properly attached to my boot from the previous incident? All seemed okay when I originally got back on my feet...

Sounds like you "Markered out". It happens. Well, at least with Markers it does.

With Markers you are either in them or out of them, nothing in between, so the previous incident could not have been related to your unwanted release, you were properly attached at the re-start of your run. Your just did something the binding did not like and it spat you out, note that Markers are not very tolerant of people being in the back seat and tend to err on the side of release rather than retention - (this is politically correct speak for yes, Markers just pre-release every so often).
