    Its a very creative idea, but I don't see it catching on anytime soon. The size of it just seems impractical.

    I'm pretty sure he's got that thing coated with Fluid Film:blush2: Do you see how that snow just "flicks" off of there? Must be pretty dry...I would think that wet snow would not flip off of there so easily...JMO.

    That thing looks like something out of an old black and white movie. He needs a little mustache and a round hat . Add some silly music and a few falls. I would hire him for entertainment. xysport
