What's the best way to repair stripped binding screw holes on a pair of jumpers?

Put JB weld on zip ties and stuff them into the holes, let the sit over night, cut the ties off even with a razor blade and mount the bindinging back on.
Same problem on trickski

Sorry I am slightly confused, what is the purpose of the zip ties and which part of the ties go into the binding holes with the resin on it?

Stuff the small flat end of several of them, they expand around the screw and give it something to hold against

I always add a piece of zip tie into the screw hole when I screw binders down. It works like a nylok nut does with a bolt and prevents the screw from loosening.

If the screw holes are stripped, then they should almost be big enough to put inserts in. Then you will never have to worry about them again.

dont use JB weld, there is nothing in the ski that JB weld can successfully bond to. It may work for a while, but you will be doing it over again.
Use a 2 part marine expoy, and make sure the hole is completely dry before applying. Using zip ties, toothpicks, or strands of fiberglass will create a matrix that the screw can grab into better. Ideally, the best thing is to fill the holes and find a new area to screw into. I've even started using extra screws so each takes less stress, and have not stripped a screw since.

Instead of a zip ty, try a piece of "Mr. Grip".
bend it so that it is shaped like a U and jam into hole. It is serrated strip of thin metal. Screw really bites into it. Available at local hardware store, originally intended to hold loosened legs on wood chair
