Sick of waiting in lift lines all weekend? You wouldn’t have to do that if you had a jet pack. Yes, a jetpack.

Stuntman Troy Hartman, who was the host of the MTV show “Senseless Acts of Video” is the guy behind the Jeston-esque pack. He strapped two jet engines, taken off a military unmanned aerial vehicle, to his back, clicked into his skis, and pointed them uphill.

He got going 47 m.p.h. up cat tracks and said that he’s been able to power up black runs, too.

This is the future, people. See it for yourself.
