Time now for a winter sports story with a high-tech twist. This winter ski resorts in the western U.S. are renting a lightweight exoskeleton that enables skiers with bad knees to shred the slopes pain-free.

WBGO's Jon Kalish brings us encouraging news for those who miss the slopes on the East Coast.
