May look kinda kooky but I wonder if you did this over your life time, how much money in gas (or electricity) you would save.
I always think about how the normal base-to-base contact way to put your skis in the rack causes a lot of drag because the tips of your skis literally act like a parachute and catch air, especially if you have rockered skis in the rack. But if you put your skis in the rack upside down the air would glide over the bases and reduce drag significantly.
I also think This definitely affects those who travel at higher speeds (50-60mph +) to get to their hill, whether that be on a highway or a backroad you can scoot on.
just a weird thought for your Thursday evening.
