These beautiful granite skis are the first ever to be made of stone.

They were created by Swiss designer, Simon Jacomet. His company, Zai, is known world-wide for their high-spec skis, only 500 of which were made this year.

"These very special limited edition Spada (the Romanic word for sword) skis are the first ever made to have a heart of Grisons granite," YankoDesign explained.

Their sleek, silver design is the most opulent way for the affluent ski enthusiast to adorn his feet for winter sport.

Although they look fantastic, it's hard to imagine how heavy these would be as your feet dangle off the edge of a chair lift!
