Ski Claw

The SkiClaw device is a mechanism that is attached to the bindings of cross country skiis. The technology enables the skier to easily and quickly climb straight up steep slopes without using the herring-bone technique or side-stepping.  It can also enable a skate-board or scooter technique for skiing on level ground. This device can also save the skier from having to wax their skiis.

4 generations of prototypes were tested and demonstrated.
