Meet the Zoa PL1: a portable rope tow that gives you a lift for backcountry skiing and snowboarding. You simply have to secure your paracord around a tree, drop the line, attach it to the Zoa PL1, and you are ready to ride the line to propel yourself up the mountain.
The device weighs 4.8kg and gives you up to 800m of vertical on a single charge. The battery is rechargeable. The PL1 is designed to work with a 550 paracord but is compatible with a range of small cords. You can find out more about it on Kickstarter.
