BURLINGTON, Vt. - Here's a sure sign the 2016 presidential campaign has gone downhill: A Vermont ski maker is out with a new pair featuring Hillary Clinton imagery on the left ski and Donald Trump on the right.

The Burlington Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/2eDpC5I ) that Renoun, in Burlington, has introduced the pair showing intricate artwork, with equal-opportunity dissing of both candidates.

The Trump ski shows him wearing a button with the message "#1 most disliked," while Clinton is wearing a "#2 most disliked" button. The Clinton ski features police tape, for those who think she's a walking crime scene, while the Trump ski features a border wall, for his widely panned anti-illegal immigration plan.

But at more than $2,000 a pair, the skis may be only for moguls.
