WHAT IS THE HANDS FREE & SKI?
The Hands Free & Ski allows skiers of all ages to comfortably carry their skis and poles right from the car or lodge to the lift, without having to store any bulky equipment.
The ski carrier can be used in several different positions, including those pictured above (from left to right the hand-held, over-the-shoulder and shoulder strap positions). It can also be used in a cross-body position for those who prefer to hike up the mountain with their gear and ski down.
Using the Hands Free & Ski, an adult can easily carry four pairs of skis and poles (or more if you’re feeling really ambitious!) One of the best aspects of the carrying system is that it’s so easy, even kids can use it.
The product features a soft carrying case (pictured left) that provides extra padding and comfort. It’s also so compact that when rolled up, it can fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.
Choose from three colors options: red, blue or black.
The Hands Free & Ski also ensures your skis and poles will be stored nicely when you return home from the slopes. Keep your equipment in the Hands Free & Ski and hang the strap over a standard wall or ceiling hook (not included).
The Hands Free & Ski was developed by George Yost after taking many ski trips with his wife and three daughters. Knowing the difficulty of carrying multiple sets of skis and poles, Yost wanted to create something that made it easier to transport equipment but didn’t involve using a bulky device. During one particular drive to Vermont, Yost came up with the concept of the Hands Free & Ski and soon went to work on a sewing machine.
