Will it ever be possible? If not, why not? If so, when? I know it sounds like a death-wish now, but at the rate our sport progresses (technology too), I'm beginning to believe that dismissing any batshit idea defies all logic.
Sidenote: I'm aware that some people--those who've lost friends,family, or heroes--might take offense to this admittedly harebrained idea. I'm neither requesting that someone try it, nor suggesting that it's possible now.
I relate it to human flight though: If you were to travel back through time to 1859 (for argument's sake) and began preaching that humans'd be flying through the sky while sitting in a chair someday, most people would say you belonged without shoelaces in a padded room somewhere. Now, to quote Louis C.K., "you watch an Adam Sandler movie, take a big runny dump, and you're there."
Have any other batshit ideas regarding what people might be doing on skis someday?
