I think you could just velco the skis on but a tie would be good just in case they want to fall off on flight. Year ago when I crashed more I used to tie a bit of thread between the dog bone links on my 130 as it saved losing them in a crash.
It's just a stretched V1 with a 450 canopy. Pretty simple to do.

With just the Velcro the skids tend to be a bit too wobbly. I want them to break away in a crash like before but not fall off or add to the takeoff tipping tendency.
