Peter’s first attempts proved the idea was possible and he found himself going downhill unexpectedly quickly. But nobody was going to invest in skis that hadn’t been thoroughly tested, so some serious lab work was required. Over 500 formulations were tried before Peter hit upon the perfect lubricant. And a good deal of monotonous testing with a plank and a lab jack were required before Peter could take his idea to the big ski companies.
Further testing in real Alpine conditions looks good and Peter is confident that the first skier to use his system in the Olympics will win gold!
