That depends on what you mean by regular bindings. You can use cross-country bindings but not alpine bindings.

What is the difference between alpine touring skis and all mountain skis?

Alpine Touring, also known as Randonnée, is a type of backcountry skiing. Randonnée ski bindings are a cross between standard downhill bindings (toes and heels locked in) and telemark bindings (only toes locked in). With randonnée bindings, the skier can clip down the heel piece when skiing downhill (like downhill bindings) and release it when skating or climbing (like telemark bindings). Special ski boots are used with both telemark and randonnée; though, randonnée boots have rigid soles like standard downhill boots. Also, randonnée bindings can release during falls, but telemark bindings cannot. And a skier need not learn to turn differently on AT skis, as with telemark skis, since the heel can be clipped down. As for the skis themselves, AT skis are typically much wider and heavier than a basic ski-area ski, as they are used more often in deep powder and ungroomed conditions; though, randonnée bindings can be mounted to most skis. All Mountain skis are a mid-width type of ski, such that the skier can handle well in both groomed and ungroomed/powder conditions--the latter not as well as with AT skis.

How do you attach rottefella nnn bc auto ski bindings?

The bindings come with installation instructions, but if you got used bindings that didn't come with instructions... Quick question: are you putting these on new skis, or on skis that already have bindings on them? If they're old skis, remove the bindings already installed and use the old screw holes for the new bindings. If they're new skis, take them to a ski tech. You've got to drill holes in your skis and there are lots of calculations involved - how much you weigh, the skis being used and the way you ski determine where your boots should be on the ski.

Can you ski downhill on cross country skis?

no Yes, but you do not have the same kind of control that you do with downhill skis partly due to the bindings only holding the toe of the cross country boots. The "Telemark" binding gives some better control.

What are telemark skis?

Telemark skis are skis which emulate an early adaptation to Nordic/cross country skiing, often credited to Sandre Norheim (excuse spelling) of Norway. Originally the telemark skiing method enabled the nordic skier to descend moderately angled snowy slopes with an increased amount of control, and with little or no equipment modifications. A controlled ski descent of a snowy slope is accomplished by turning to maneuver and meter speed. The classical telemark turn is accomplished with one heel touching the outside/downhill/leading ski and the other heel raised from the inside/uphill/trailing ski. Done effectively, this position requires significant bending of both knees, and some twisting of the hips/torso. Today, telemark skiing is a form of alpine skiing. Telemark ski equpment varies from conventional alpine ski equipment or from alpine touring ski equipment regarding boots and bindings. Through a specially designed boot, Telemark ski equipment fastens the toe and the ball(widest part) of each foot to a ski. The heel of the telemark foot/boot can pivot vertically, with some resistance, about the ball of the telemark foot/boot. For more visual information, visitwww.telemarktips.comPeople often argue the advantages and disadvantages and relative difficulties attributed to using the various types of ski equipment. Ultimately, it is important to remember the value and spirit of recreation does not often depend on competition or argument, and that recreation is often more fun when done with others.
