|Sounds like an interesting idea, but i doubt that it will work.
I just started skiing I AM NOT AN EXPERT, but I read a article that Colin Haley wrote for cascadeclimbers.com where he talks about using cords connecting the tips of your skis right below your knees to stiffen up the skis while wearing climbing boots, http://cascadeclimbers.com/...-hardware-part-three
this may help.
sure, the way its described (cord to the front of the ski) will make it harder to fall backwards with a heavy backpack, but for the skiing performance to actually increase, i have to lean forward, so i also have to put on a cord to the back of the ski.
apart from the cords probably getting in the way, i doubt that it positively affect the performance of the skis, if the back constantly gets pulled upwards while skiing, totally "destroying" any tension the skiis have by default.
