Yo MP,

I'm looking to outfit skis with ice boot compatible bindings for backcountry approaches. Anybody have ideas?

how is splitboarding a better option than skiing for approaches?

Silvretta bindings are your only real option. Act quick because they aren't made anymore and they are/will be harder to find very soon.

These are a bit heavier than other more modern options, but I've found them on ebay for $25 and turned some others on to them over the years. Bryan Gilmore

The expensive but lighter option is dyna tlt5 boots and dyna bindings. U will save 2lbs or more over a silvy set up and you will be able to ski to boot. And a according to cold thistle they climb pretty well too. harpo-the-climber
