If you're not the best why the fuck do you need a camera? Get the pass and go improve.

Get the pass, screw the camera.

It's verging on silly how many guys are riding down the mountain holding their little pole-cameras out in front of them. "Be here now."

LOL! Haircut/job!

...because that's what 15 year-olds like to do with blow up dolls.

another vote for pass. gopro's will be dying out in popularity i'm sure. i was given a gopro to try out for the remainder of the season and i must admit i'm not convinced i would actually lay money down for them. it is cool for a couple of times out but i haven't been using it at all lately.

Ok, here's a logical comparison.

1. Season Pass: Allows you to snowboard for free.

2. Camera: Allows you to be a poser.

Without the season pass, the camera becomes useless because you can't even go snowboarding. Season passes always come before any gear, because you can always man up and ride in a pair of jeans and a Carthart jacket.

Unless of course your a poser, and you stand around in the lodge in this all day long trying to look cool.
