"The Skizee" 4 Stroke Powered Ski Machine Available For Pre-Order

Welcome to the world of motorized skiing. Canadian inventor Jim Maidment started thinking about The Skizee when he was just a boy. His local ski hill Snow Goose Mountain always had issues with the chairlift and he wanted a more reliable mode of transportation to the top. After years of tinkering The Skizee was born. They are available for pre-order in time for Christmas but the price isn’t listed. Check out the website HERE:

“And I thought then, ‘If there was only a way to have motorized skis, it would be as good as anti-gravity to me. I would have so much fun. As I was looking at it, I sort of thought, I wonder if I could make this work. So I started with an electric motor, a few batteries and a couple of BMX wheels with chains on them, and I was able to go on the flats and whatever. And it worked; it just wasn’t enough. So I built a bigger one. Eventually, after 10 prototypes and building up to what’s safe and usable, this is the end result.”
