A WORD ABOUT SKI BINDINGS .
In the past two years, the emergence of Anti-Friction Devices
(AFD's) has significantly increased the safety of all bindings.
As the snow season nears, we strongly recommend that everyone
have bindings checked and an AFD installed. For $3 to $9 you. can double
the safety of your bindings.
Come out and we'll be glad to show you the evidence.
