slimjimzrule I ended up just using a handle bar mount on the end of my ski pole. If i can get a old pole then i will flatten down the end and use that. Thanks for the idea

This is what I'm using.

It has 3 sections and extends out to almost 5 feet which is pretty sweet (I never use it at that much extension though). The only thing I don't like about it is its collapsed length is a bit too long and I hate having to unscrew the gopro to switch from the pole clamp and quick releases.

I might have to steal Strmchzr's idea!

Some videos:

Strmchzr I used an old ski pole for my GoPro pole. After cutting the ski pole in half, I hammered the end flat and attached an adhesive mount to the pole.

I let the adhesive completely dry for 24 hours before taking out on the slopes. It worked well.

slimjimzrule Thanks for the ideas guys. I think i might make one out of a cheap monopod. And cool video, i was just up at snow summit

sponger606 it all depends on how you hold the pole, ha!

i felt i was holding a little low, i think if you make a conscious decision to hold it higher, above you hips then it should work out fine
the pole isn't that long it looks longer online

I'm debating on the grenade grip but watching their video on Vimeo it doesn't show much. I like yours better with the full view of the board which I think is sick. But the idea of dragging a 3 foot pole everywhere

Just found this from their facebook page

It sucks because it's a pow day so I can't tell how much of the board is in view since it's always buried or covered. But I still like sponger's video better. Decisions decisions!

sponger606 The gopro was about level with the pole. Only used 1 extender. I have a gopro 960 and this was R3 on that model.

Nefarious how far down do you tilt your GP? I tried it at a few and am torn.

Also, what setting are you using for this vid?

I've been thinking of getting the mini just so its easier to stick in my bookbag but I think the regular gets a better field of view. Decisions, decisions..
