Compact Camera for skiing??
I'm looking at replacing my Ixus 40, however I can't seem to find anything on the market that has most of the following? I have an EOS 30D but like to have a compact for taking skiing, mountain biking etc, hence the need for an optical viewfinder and large zoom!
Does anyone know of anything in the works?
1) optical viewfinder or LCD that shows the 'live' picture in burst mode, ie so I can track a fast moving object in continous shooting mode
2) At least 2fps
3) decent zoom (up to 200mm equivalent at least) and ideally a wideangle of at least 28mm equivalent
4) optical zooming while filming
5) image stabilisation
Nice to have:

Funnily enough I was just measuring up the G11, and came to the conclusion it wouldn't fit inside a ski jacket pocket once you added in some form of case for a little extra protection.
I think it's the same with the Sony HX-1, for that size I may as well take my SLR (which I am trying to avoid doing)
I was just reading about the Nikon S8000 which if the LCD stays 'live' whilst tracking a subject may well be one to consider...
