go to your local hardware store, go to the broom section, they have great extendable broom sticks for cheap … choose one that is sturdy and solid in case you fall so that it doesnt bend.

GoPro Poles, Mounts, Grips & Accessories - GoPole

I just had one of these come in the mail today. I think it's pretty slick, but it doesn't telescope.

It's really light and the strap is high quality. I like that it has enough of a cord so if it got trapped under you, it wouldn't torque your arm off.

I use an extendable monopod and tripod adapter for the gopro.

I've used a broken ski pole I found by the gondola (should be easy to find at any bigger resort) and later upgraded to an extendable monopod by Xshot along with the GoPro tripod adapter.

We bought a monopod also that extended from 8" to 30". However, my husband hated the way the pole was always in the movies so he diy'd his own folding pole that could bend so you can't see the pole as much in the videos. You can see the pole at the end of this video that he uses.

Here's what my footage looks like..

I think it's a good idea to get a white or silver stick so that it blends more with the snow, than a dark color that's going to stick out too much.
