Now what do we do about the Texas tuck?

A ski instructor in Canada has come up with a device that gives learning skiers an auditory warning if they're using improper form. The Ski Coach is worn like a Camelbak. Ball bearings in the backpack make a satisfying "clink" if the skier is taking the turns right, but make no noise if the skier is leaning too much into a curve.
The Ski Coach, $49.95, is sold exclusively on

This doesn't correct the "sit-against-the-back-of-the-boot-oh-my-god-y'all" Texas tuck. For that, I think Ski Coach should make a new product.
It should include a shock collar.

Finally the Canadians are putting the balls back in skiing.
