if ever you need to stop in an emergency while skiing, theres little chance that in the split second between you an the impact you will be able to stop with enough force to stop the impact, so the safety skis come with buttons on the top of your ski poles, and if pressed will send a grappling hook far into the ground, and hopefully latch, so you can safely stop fast enough.

       Learning to stop in the usual manner would be significantly easier and more effective.

       So these are basically rocket propelled grappling hooks on the end of the ski poles that will instantly dislocate one's shoulders when activated?

       //in the split second// you aren't going to travel far enough for the hook to set and tighten. Although, if done just wrong, you'd wind up getting mashed down into the snow VERY hard.   

       I usually fishbone 'ideas' that are poorly spelled and written, but this gets fishboned for being bad.

       Well, despite the honor, it's bad even by Halfbakery standards.

       Um, perhaps one should learn to ski. Or be a sacrifice to the Ents.

       /thats why i put it on halfbakery!/ [the extreme baker] You're missing something - the bakery is for ideas that are good and original, if perhaps a little impractical. It's not for ideas that are outright poor.
