GPS 'Satski' is a pricey way to enjoy the slopes

The unit has some useful features but reportedly costs $3,000.

Satski

If it's possible for skiers and boarders to actually agree on anything other than their shared love of snow, it might be something like this. The "Satski" is a GPS device developed specifically for the slopes to provide such invaluable information as the best runs, levels of difficulty and--most important--which lifts have the shortest lines.

Like Garmin's " Edge " line for bikes, the Satski can also store uploaded information that can be shared with others, as well as record such real-time performance stats as speed, distance and altitude. And for the apre-ski lodge, Gadgetizer says it has an MP3 player and games to boot.

There's just one problem--it costs almost $3,000. Which means we'll have to stick with the brandy snifter and fake cast for accessories.
