As some of you might know, I write articles over on Skiessentials.com for the Chairlift Chat section. I recently went looking for new content, and came across this Kickstarter campaign for a wind powered ski sail that brings you up the mountain.
I wrote up a quick article and posted it here, but I also wanted to bring it up on EpicSki. After doing a quick search on it, I didn’t see anything in the forums so I figured I’d make a post.
Anyways, what do you guys think of this? Is it practical enough to be the next big thing? Is there something about hiking a mountain that just can’t be replaced with a wind sail? Personally, I think its a great idea but have a lot of questions about things like ease of use, weight, etc.
Those are just my thoughts though, what do you guys think?
