Background: Visnews filmed Feb 16 in the Austrian Tyrol an experimental device fitted to skis being produced and tested by skier Anderl Molterer. The device looking like a minute ship's engine room ventilator. It is set over a hole in the ski through which air is trapped when the ski is in motion. The air stream forced along groove in the underside of the ski reduces surface friction. The makers claim the device makes skiing faster.
