Tarzanman I carry a Canon 7D with me on the slopes some days.
My advice:
- Keep it simple. I bring one lens with me (85mm f/1.8) which means I never have a reason to open up the camera body.
- A fixed focal length lens means less moving parts. A fast prime means I can still get action shots on overcast days.
-Take it easy. DSLR days are the days that I don't push the envelope too hard.

If you bring your camera out enough, you will get condensation inside the lens and maybe on the mirror. I have had this happen to me in alpine conditions on the hill and also tropical conditions on an island in the Atlantic.

ThunderChunky Honestly, just don't carry it until you're confident you're not going to fall. There really is no other guarantee way.

Camera protection

This is my camera setup:
Canon T2i
17-55mm f2.8
50mm f1.4

Its not much but I am working on getting more gear. I mostly use the 17-55mm and use the 50mm for indoor parties (low light). I really enjoy both activities and want to put them together but i am afraid of smashing my lens. I do fall a lot (currently doing intermediate runs) so protecting my gear is critical. Any ideas on how to do this?
