Thanks, but  I already have sleds.

 

Looks like all of the con's of a sled, with very few of the pro's.

That thing is ugly in so many ways.

Think one of those big fans on carried on the back is a much better idea; and that was a terrible idea.

This. Might be slightly cumbersome dropping pillow lines.

Lets see... I can get two pairs of skis, two people, and someone towing behind a sled, and still climb a 20+ degree slope, or I can push myself up the hill with this thing, and then when I get to the top? Maybe just huck it over a cliff where it belongs? Or send it down the hill and hope it misses the trees?

I remember trying out my buddy's new snow toy. The whole gang kidded him about how it would never come close to the fun of being on skis.  

 

It was a Snurfer. 

 

Opens up that seldom skied private stash that was a 3 mile logging road skin to get at.

I think its a cool idea, just not for skiing...

 

As someone said before I could see it becoming almost like a segway on snow. I'm sure its way less expensive than a snow mobile and it could have some usefulness in arctic villages and such. Make it with an electric motor and it could be used in a more urban setting, even though batteries don't deal with cold very well the torque of an electric motor would definitely be a benefit..

It would be cool if you could put that thing in a backpack for the way down though.
