grafta Nothing is as funny (and attracts as much mocking) as seeing people with GoPro filming themselves on bunny slopes... or falling repetitively. Nice footage bro, snow sky snow sky tree sky snow... groaning sound


Sorry I know this isn't helpful...


I guess if you use the pole mount you'll be able to see what your form is like, if that's why you are filming

Nefarious Groomers across the boards. Some icy crap too. The footage I got was a direct reflection of me being new at filming with a Go Pro. Was my first time. Most of the shots I got were a little too far off to be considered amazing. For the future, I know to stay closer and what to do and not do.

It's trial and error. You gotta figure it out.

I do know that the footage I got from my final day is 300% better than day 1.

It's going to take me a week or so to edit, but I'll throw up the video in this thread when I finish.

In my opinion, pole mount trumps all. Follow footage is excellent because you can stay a bit back but get the close up you want. Self shots end up looking great. It's just a nice way to go about it. The downside to the pole is the weight. I have a Go-Pole and found it to be heavy the first day of riding. By day 3 I was used to it and I didn't think about it anymore.

Take it all with a grain of salt. Everyone has their preference.
What were you riding? Groomers? Park? Pow Pow?

The videos of people riding look way cooler this way also. I myself wouldnt know since i've yet to hit the slopes with a gopro yet but when i do i think a pole mount would be best. (that is, once i leave the bunny hill) lol.

In Your Opinion. GoPro

What is the best way to film yourself when your riding? The classic helmet mount? Holding it in your hand? Chest mount? The list goes on.
