I received a notice that VIST does not have proper indemnification insurance for their bindings so shops cannot mount them. To date their has been no word on them gaining this insurance so liability can be a big issue.

"From the National Ski & Snowboard Retailers Association
You may have received the 2008-09 Ski Bindings Indemnification List recently, either in printed or electronic format (or both). VIST provided a list of the bindings they said would be covered under their program. Several people have indicated to me that they are not certain that the insurance that VIST says it has will protect U.S. shops. I have asked VIST to clarify this issue, but I have not heard back from them. As soon as I get additional information, I will let you know. Tom

I would imagine Nordica has their own indemnification program.

I heard Vist will have their policy in order in a very short time. The paperwork has been processed.
