No, you wouldn't. Most models are longer than blades (120-135cm).
And ski tips are more elastic.
If you try it, you will know more.

Tom - i think Bectoria was referring to the Pickle as been quite simply awesome and not your new skis that no one on here seems to be impressed by so far.

I'm impressed by them. In terms of skiing for agricultural purposes
I can see them going along away. Should you be a land owner with "huge tracts of land" on the side of a hill then you could plough your fields without the need for a tractor & reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.

There you go Tom, I think i've found your market place for these, try posting them on uphill-gardeners.com

Hahaha, did anyone watch the youtube videos? These things look ridiculous, the guy skiing them looked all over the place, I don't know if it was the skis or him just being a bit rubbish, but he looked on the verge of falling all the time.

I really can't see any advantages to them, it looks like you have to ski them right in the back seat, which is going to make your legs tired as hell, also when I jump off a cliff I'd prefer to carry on moving, rather than have the tails of my skis dug into the soil below the snow!

Anything worth doing is worth getting hurt for

I was going to say the same, but wasn't sure if it was just me. Certainly not the best sales message....buy these and you'll ski like a twat!

It's already hapenning. Our 100 m long tract has an average steepness
of 35 degrees.
That's why we invented them.
As the ground was frozen, we made them so sharp.

If I tell you the truth, could you forgive me, Missybridge ?

Yeah, is that really you on the pic ?

Yeah, the young skier can afford loking on the verge of falling.
At the age of 10 to 14 he was the best steep slope skier before
he converted to snowboard. And has come back just to make this video.

Any "sales message" doesn't apply to this thread. There is nothing to sell.

Summerers,

I couldn't think of a better place for them, the perfect accessory for an up-hill gardener.

Funny thing is; I can remember when razors only had one blade, now they all have endless stacks of blades and gadgets attached to them.

Is this the next step/future for snow-blading?

When will the Quatro version be available?

I remain,

I am thoroughly unimpressed by the videos. Looks like poor technique on poor technology.
