Where the binding is mounted is all about personal preference.

If you ski terrain park, a center mount could be more your style, where as if you ski all mountain, you may wish to mount farther back. Many skis come with a "recommended" line. You may wish to go from there. If you have further questions, any tech at your local ski shop should be able to answer all of your questions, and mount the bindings for you!

What is an alpine ski Binding Indemnification Agreement?

Ski binding manufacturers will indemnify ski shops, who mount and adjust their bindings, against claims from skiers who are injured while using the bindings. The manufacturers update their lists annually. Once a binding model falls off the indemnification list, ski shops are no longer indemnified for mounting or adjusting the bindings. In the event of a lawsuit, the ski shop would have to defend itself in court, rather than having the manufacturer's lawyers defend the suit. Because of this, very few shops will touch a binding which is not on the indemnification list. Ski binding indemnification lists are compiled by the National Ski and Snowboard Retailers Association. The NSSRA qualifies their compiled list with the following: "Every effort has been made to insure the accuracy of the list. But please remember that the last word on accuracy is that provided by the vendors, usually in their tech manuals."

What were the changes in skiing?

There were many changes in skiing. from how the ski was made to to technique. The Ski was originally made out of wood but now a days there is a thin piece of metal in the high tech ones with no wood found in any. Also the binding and boot has changed with the ski. The boots have now a warm linner with a plastic shell with metal buckles. The binding is now made of mostly metal with some plastic.
