Unique features & benefits:

The Snow Job[tm] is a multi-functional ski accessory product that solves the three most common problems that skiers experience.

The Snow Job combines three accessories into one. Constructed of lightweight yet strong nylon mesh material combined with straps, hooks and carrying handles, the Snow Job quickly converts into a ski/pole carrier, a ski seat, or a fanny pack in 60 seconds or less.

    Ski/pole carrier:
    Because carrying heavy and awkward-shaped skis and poles can be very frustrating for skiers, the Snow Job functions as a convenient ski/pole carrier. Fastened around the skis/poles with securing straps, the ski/pole carrier is assembled within a minute, which can be easily carried by attached handles. The nylon mesh allows trapped snow to fall through the mesh - not melt or stay inside like a standard carrier.

    Because the carrier also instantly converts into a fanny pack, there is no need to go store the carrier in a locker before going to the lift lines. This also eliminates having to place the skis and poles over the shoulder, and possibly damaging or soiling expensive ski outfits.

    Ski seat:
    When skiers become tired and need to sit down for a while, sitting in the snow has been the traditional method. The Snow Job becomes a comfortable and dry hammock-style ski seat within a minute, and will not blow in the wind.

    Just dig the skis tail down into the snow about three feet apart. Place the suspension straps of the Snow Job over the tips of the skis, and insert both poles into a pocket at the bottom of the seat which are then placed on top of the bindings. (The recommended weight limit is 200 pounds for use with down-hill skis only.)

    Fanny pack:
    When not in use as a ski/pole carrier or ski seat, the Snow Job rolls up into a fanny pack to holds items needed throughout the day. An adjustable waist strap accomodates bulky or tight fitting ski outfits.

The Snow Job is stylish, lightweight, quick to set up, and does not requires any equipment. It is economically priced at $30-40.00. Having the ski/pole carrier, ski seat and fanny pack all in one product is convenient, saves time, and eliminates having to go back and forth to a locker.

The Snow Job was nominated for Best Sporting Goods of Snow at the 1995 Invention Convention and was aired on FOX and NBC news, generating attention from the public.

Target market:

The U.S. Alpine skier market is 10,620,000 according to the National Sporting Goods Association, 1994 Sports Participation Study. Dollars spent by consumers at on-snow specialty stores for accessories in 94/95 were $249,386,000.00.

Inventor is seeking:

Outright sale of the patent rights for $15,000.00.
