idk. i'd like to go just to say i went but its supposed to rain both days so i don't want to spend $150 on gas to ride in the pouring rain or find out they had to close because of conditions. not sure yet.
I've always wanted footage of myself. There's a few out there, but my friends take their sweet time uploading them haha. Obviously, I would use it for more than snowboarding. I might even just use it as a normal video camera since it's so compact.
if you want to use it as a normal video camera I'd stay away from either the Contour or the GoPro get a compact camera with HD capability. You can get the Kodak Zi8 which is a small point-and-shoot about the size of a cell phone, for about $120 I think.
I don't have much experience with the Contour but the GoPro doesn't work to well as a normal video camera primarily because of the fisheye, depth perception gets sketchy because everything that's not very close looks very far away. Neither the Contour nor the GoPro have a zoom capability and the audio quality on both of them blows.
