in the past we've been a boarding family. only one daughter has shown an interest in one ski so far. our current generic ski is too small for me (6'2" 220lbs). so i'm looking at a new or used ski and i know i'll need something 69-71" depending on the width, however, any advice on bindings would be appreciated. is there any downside to a "real" binding over the slip on compression bindings that are entry level? my wife thought the cheap ones might be safer when you fall as they will likely release easily. you can tell, her first thought was me falling.
any advice/comments on bindings for a beginner would be appreciated. thanks.
