Invention: Snow Skiing With a Jetpack

If stuntman and extreme sport fanatic Troy Hartman has his way, we might see high speed uphill snow skiing in the Winter Olympics some day.

Did I say uphill?

Hartman built himself a jetpack, strapped it to his back and put on his snow skis. At 50% throttle, he was able to ski at nearly 50 miles per hour on flat terrain. Who knows how fast he’ll be able to ski up the mountains after tweaking his design?
