I tested the GoPro HD Hero high definition helmet cam while back country skiing near White Water Ski Resort in West Kootenays, B.C. Canada.
To film this footage while skiing at Five Mile Basin, I chose to use the GoPro “Chesty” mount.
The video was shot in 960p (1280x960, 4:3) resolution to get the extra vertical height, which makes the video more stable. Editing was done using imovie with no color or any other correction or post processing.
This was day two of our skiing and for sure the nicest weather but the least amount of powder. It kept on snowing a little bit as days passed.
We ended up skiing 5 days in the back country and two days at White Water so stand by for more videos featuring some of the powder the Kootenays are famous for.
Hope you like it
