A Self-Propelled Snowboard Makes Going Uphill Just As Fun


The rig, which is powered by a pair of motors borrowed from an electric bicycle, is designed to be easily removed when a snowboarder gets to the top of the hill so they can let gravity take over again. Not surprisingly, the Propul-Surf doesn’t provide anywhere near the speed and thrills as you’d get from something like a snowmobile. But compared to slowly hiking back up a hill with your board in tow, it might as well be an amusement park thrill ride.
