Place the ski pair between your back and pack on the shoulder harness straps. Not the most comfortable option, but quick and easy for short stretches.
For the minimalists out there who ski with a pin binding (like Dynafit, Plum etc.)and without hipbelt can use an attachment technique that works without straps and other attachment aids.
Just use two of the included quick release webbing straps.
Modular: skis can also be attached diagonally to the front of the pack.
Quick and easy pack side ski attachment.
Depending on ski-length and personal preference, place the included webbing straps in the desired loop of the daisy-chain.
Lateral ski attachment made easy: feed the 4 included webbing-straps (2 on each side of the pack) through the daisy chains. The strap length can be adjusted steplessly depending on ski-width.
In order to secure the skis, clip the karabiner (found in the interior lid pocket) to the drawcord and run the cord through the grey webbing loop as a pulley.

Trekking poles attach quickly to the side of the pack. Skis, snowshoes, snowboards, etc. can also be secured to the front using the 4 included webbing straps.
Apart from the two standard ski attachment techniques (lateral and diagonal), when in open country the skis can also be clamped under the pack lid without the need of additional straps. This technique is actually very comfortable as the skis are positioned close to the body and the load sits right next to the shoulders.
