1. anonymous just gave you the answer.

Your error was to divide sin25.2 by 1808,
should have been 1808/sin25.2
(cross-multiply the equation and you won't make that mistake)
to get 4246 feet

Ski boots are usually made with releasable bindings. This is done for safety – if you fall and your ski gets caught, the binding between the boot and the ski will release so the ski pops off rather than twisting your knee.
