That much of a mass would seem likely to hit the ground pretty hard. Still, if someone were to mount a fan at the rear of the snowmobile, hooked up to the engine so that it could provide enough thrust to at least maintain straight & level flight, they might be on to something. Beyond the XXXTREEEEMEtards getting their kicks, a device like this might be useful for the rescue services who need to peel skiers and the XXXTREEEEMEtards off of trees and rocks and haul ‘em to hospitals.

    That’s a good idea. recently someone was killed in one of those hollow inflatable spheres sent down a mountain–maybe a combination.

    I wonder if anyone ever thought about wrapping a large membrane/wing around the lower body of a rocket…

      Yes. Inflatable “Rogallo wings” were proposed for everything up to and including the S-IC stage.
