Sam, whose mass is 71.0 kg , takes off down a 51.0 m high, 11.0 ∘ slope on his jet-powered skis. The skis have a thrust of 210 N . Sam's speed at the bottom is 41.0 m/s . What is the coefficient of kinetic friction of his skis on the snow?

Where did you get those numbers from?
resolving forces down the plane we have \(\large 210 + mg \sin 11 - \mu mg \cos 11 = ma\) where \(\mu \) is the coefficient of friction, m = 71kg, g is gravity, a = acceleration
we know that acceleration a from \(\large v^2 = u^2 + 2ax\) ie \(\large 41^2 = 0^2 + 2 \;a (267.3)\).
267.3 is the length of the slope, you have all you need to get its dimensions from trig.
put that together and solve for \(\mu\)
