think I need a bit more info before I could answer your questions. For example how would I tell it which piste I want to ski down &  how would I get the info for a particular resort into the gadget

I think the new Apple AR Glass and Google Glass will replace all handheld devices eventually (and earphones), maybe removing most monitors.

A lightweight headset with augmented reality, and an API that allows customisation, is the way forward.

The biggest challenge I foresee is going to be the user input. How do you easily tell this device which way you want to go? Remember you will have gloves on so dexterity is minimal.

Also are piste maps available in a machine readable format?

Sorry but it looks like a solution looking for a problem to me.

There is already GPS goggles out there with full displays and HUD types but not piste maps, I would have thought leveraging existing technology would be easier than coming up with a new device.

Also after the first few days in a resort you don't really need a piste map, if you do get lost there is good signage in resort if you need to navigate your way back down or to another lift.

Also just to engage UKC spelling pedant mode as nobody else has so far it is 'potential' and 'appreciate' ;-)
