Fancy a set of skis for less than a quid? Peter (our KCS boss-man) met this guy while sledging up on Latrigg in the weekend.
Originally from the Himalayas, as a kid he had to walk to school daily up a hill the height of Skiddaw and then ski back home on homemade skis like these. Plastic pipe, wire and string bindings. Total cost approximately 64p. We’re going to try making some of our own.
Check out a video of these skis being tied on: https://youtu.be/V8thIyvOWa8
