Should I Lift My Bindings?

On Piste, Off Piste, & Instructing


 Are your bindings lifted? Do you recommend to lift bindings on teaching skis? Are your bindings lifted for off piste as well?


Yes, my bindings are lifted, when I free ski and when I teach.  It provides more edging power, and lets you get on edge more quickly.  I find no negative aspect to teaching on lifted bindings.  Off piste, because you're generally not skiing on a hard surface, or at really high edge angles, I find lifted binding less important.
