The skins are so the board doesn't slide backward when you are climbing. You use the same binding for climbing and descending. That's one of the advantages, less equipment to carry. Snowshoes through trees with a board on your back is a serious pain in the ass. The bindings attach to the board with a metal plate that can be moved. The plate also serves to hold the board together.
