Ski Gear Problems

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

What problems do you face while skiing that you wish could fix?

 

 

Also, take this survey to give us more feedback:

Could you give some more context on the research?

A group of 4 of us are researching problems that we could possibly fix for our engineering class. We decided we wanted to focus more on winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.

Goggle lens that help with low light. Like what we had yesterday at Okemo VT. My 58y/o eye's had a hard time along with my same age ski buddies seeing the snow surface during the light fog and changable snow coming out of the sky.

 

Oh and I want these same lens to not be to bright on normal day's and not cost an arm and two legs.

 

We had a great morning even reaching a speed of 51mph on the iphone. So the light was good enough early on. but around noon time as we were skiing down Upper Fall Line which is about 100ft wide and lined by trees. I kept saying on the run, I wish I could see the snow.

I find myself wishing I had the next 1,000,000,000 days off work with pay so I could ski every day.

 

If you can fix that, I'll see to it that you get an A in your engineering class.

I wish I could ski with a GoPro on an extendable arm like snowboarders do but not have to sacrifice using my ski poles. Some sort of ridiculous apparatus that could accommodate me and and annoy others on the chair lift would be appreciated.

50+ @ Okemo - was that on Chief or WC?  Nice!  I hear ya on the vis there, I swear it seems like a 50/50 shot for me if there will be fog on the upper half of that mountain whenever I'm there...... do love to rip on the groomers when it is clear!   I'd like to check my speed sometime on the GPS but I'm sure it would be something like 25 mph when I think I'm doing more like 40!

Now this thread is off on the right foot.

Hmmm reading the questions on the survey it seems the research is biased towards a soft ski boot, (much like the Apex. http://apexskiboots.com/ ) rather than other hard goods.

 

In which case my answer would be. Come up with a soft boot with the capability of the Apex at half the price or less and you *might* have a game changer.
