Coming Through

Fall Line
posted: 03/10/2002

Leave it to an Austrian to squeeze a few more minutes into your ski day. The Ski-Through-Loo, invented by Arlberg liftie Johann Berger, 55, allows users to ski directly into a cubicle, then schuss out the other side without ever shedding their gear. Berger came up with the inspiration after witnessing kids in ski classes routinely falling behind schedule. "Every ski instructor is well aware of the problem: 10 minutes after a lesson begins, 17 out of 20 children need to go to the toilet," he told the local press. After a few failed prototypes, Berger installed a one-way system to prevent mid-loo collisions.
