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.

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!

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
