Help out a Student ? :D

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey all, looking for a bit of help. I'm studying product design engineering and for my 4th year project I'm designing a ski training aid which there are very few of on the market. I've made a quick survey that's to help me validate my idea.
Its only 4 questions, shouldn't take long at all. Would really appreciate it if you could fill it in.

Filled it out, but basically this site consists of people who already know how to ski and are sort of ski fanatics.  I doubt you're going to find many interested in a "ski product" (in the survey) without some kind of indication what the product is.  Generally here the products used to improve one's skiing are boots, skis, exercise, and beer.  A "ski training aid"?  Like leashes, tip holders?  I'm guessing close to 99% of the members here are beyond that stuff.  You'll have to be a bit more descriptive.

Well howie, good luck with your design. Might I suggest that you shift you focus slightly to snowboarders instead of skiers. Snowboarders in general are more likely to be self taught, you can tell by watching them. I think they would find more use for some sort of training aid to help them train.

but I agree with sibhusky, needs to be a bit more specific than that. take skiers edge for example, it' a useful training tool if it wasn't too expensive I would get one.  SkiA balance block? Not so much...

Hmmm...and is this "training" as in "how to" or "training" as in "conditioning"?  I thought of it as a "how to" based on the questions.  A Skier's Edge is more like exercise, not instruction.
