Can't help you Trail Talk...

I was out today for the first time on new bindings- Fritschi Diamer Vipec 12. It was about -2 with fresh, wet heavy snow. I read a review a few days ago of snow build-up inside the heal piece, preventing sliding forward (into ski mode) and back (into walk mode). This happened to me. Warming it to melt the snow/ice, or trying to get a little tool inside the heal piece from the back to loosen the snow out are possible solutions. Trying to force the heal piece is not a good idea, as the binding is mostly plastic. Pain in the ass....
