Hi,

Does anyone know of anyone capable of mounting Plum bindings in the Edinburgh area?

Cheers.

maybe, but their service is not ideal - everything is shipped to Glasgow, and takes about a week.

Was hoping to avoid a trip to a UK stockist, ie Facewest!

Does anyone know how they are fitted, ie, is it the same jig as Dynafit?

If you're talking about Plum Guides, then yes... same jig as Dynafit Vertical/Comfort, but not Radical (which has a different toe layout). If you're talking about any of their other stuff (like the Yak or their teeny race things) then no.

You could try asking on Snowheads or Winterhighland; you can probably find some local skiiers on there who might have some useful suggestions.

If you were feeling brave you could always do it yourself >:-) You could always have a practise run in a bit of scrap wood whilst you wait for any other suggestions for neaby techs!

Freeze now stock Dynafit bindings so they should be able to help.

I have asked FPS, and, failing that, will try snowsportservices - is he open yet?

Cheers for your help peeps.

His web site says yes - but I've found his advertised opening hours to be more of a guideline than a rule...

In reply to macstinator: I'd go to Aviemore to either Mountainspirit or Cairngorm Mountain Sports.

Freeze Pro Shop look most likely to do it. A nice chap from Facewest concurred that they use the same Dynafit jig - which FPS have, as they are now stockists.

No idea what Plum bindings are, but Hillend Ski Centre do mounting. Don't know if they are currently open or still do it though.
