    Neat, but...

    Before I assume, I'll ask: Do those things float? It looks as though one skier/skipper lost his ski at about 1 minute in the video...

    A couple of almost bird strikes in there

    And one ski sank. The other riders cannot stop to help, of course, since snow mobiles do not float. Really raises the stakes in that cold water.

    Nope, doesn't float at all, but the new KTM concept does.

    Been there,done that. It is very addictive. It's like playing Russian Roulette. First you do a small opening of water,then you always push it further,longer.....or see how slow you can go and still make it.

    But loose one in the lake,You'd better get it out before the Powers that be find out,Big fines for the oil and gas leakage into the water.

    You guys should hook up bouys to the sleds so they dont sink. Seems fun though, now if we only had snow.....
