Anybody skiing 20 or 30 times a year is skiing way, way more then the vast majority of people (at least here in the USA). I think the number of days that the "average skier" gets out is somewhere around 7.
I would hope that any skier who logs 20+ days a year is more then capable of moving around on the flats / slight uphills without the aid of any sort of "cleat".
Skiers who might benefit from such a gadget probably aren't the type who will be searching through ski gear catalogs or hanging out in ski shops looking for an item such as the one you're proposing. Skiers who do look through catalogs / hang out in shops will have the reaction you're getting here.
I'm glad you found a way to increase your enjoyment of the slopes. However, I honestly believe that you are the only person who needs such a device. i.e., the market size for such an item is one. You.
