I must say that I always enjoy your column.
Regarding two prong ski brakes. I do not know who invented them, but I had an incident at Killington with them. It was in the mid 70’s when they first came out. I had one of the first pairs. I went to get on the chairlift and was asked where my safety strap was. I informed them that I had this new kind of brake on my skis. I was not allowed on the lift. They gave me a piece of string to use, so my ski would not fall from the chair.
The following year lots of people were using brakes and there weren’t any more incidents.
