Get a micro light engine and prop, strap it to your back, then go skiing over plains or even uphill.

       What you're describing is the powerpack from a Paramotor. They're quite heavy. It would not be easy to balance on skis while wearing one, particularly if travelling at speed.

       //strap it to your back// Given that skis on snow is not a friction-free interface, strapping it to your butt would work better.   

       Having a small engine on the end of each ski would be better than that: there's some moment arm there which would lessen precessional effects.
