I've been slacking on putting up Photos and such. Got a fairly decent POV from Bert last Saturday. Finally got something edited. Enjoy.

walove, the vertical for most runs isn't huge. Usually around 800-1k of sustained vert. The thing is for a lot of it, all you you have to do is hike half of that for the run. So you do get a fair amount of bang for you buck. We actually toured from the top of the pass making our way down drainages to an area called 1st Creek. Depends on the tour you do that direction but you get around 3k vertical down and you climb almost 1k less than that. One of the drops where I have the stick is pretty short though, maybe 600 vertical on the main line. There is another 400-500 around a ridge. If you go higher up the ridge into the alpine line, you get about a grand.

Also, if you stay at the top of the pass and stick to the old ski are runs, you can get a ton of runs. I've done as many as ten hot lapping the top of the pass. Access is that easy. For us, we got three drops but they were of pretty good quality. It's a fun tour.

I've done a fair amount of backcountry around the states and Bert is definitely a special place. Teton Pass might be the only place that has a similar set up. And of course it's Teton Pass. Still, Bert is a great spot to spend some time at. It's definitely world class.

Awesome video.

I have to admit, that POV footage doesn't show much. You have no idea how good the person is and how fast you're going.

While watching the POV stuff it literally, to me, looks like someone who doesn't know how to ride is riding (and I know it's not true because it's you).

Then you switch to the stuff where you're pointing it back on you, and then you see the speed and the lines.

I've noticed that. The stick does seem to catch better action video, you can't really see what the line is you're doing. I am trying to make an effort to bust it out for a line or two on my tours. It's a bit more of a hassle than just slapping it on my helmet. It is also something I want to use on runs that are a little more openly spaced than some of the tighter tree lines.

Cody will be joining us. He won't let me get out the door without him.

Yeah the POV is cool because it shows where you are going. But I couldn't gauge your skill or speed until it flipped around. It's just the nature of video recording I guess.

I'm not even 5% the rider you are, but notice on my own videos it seems slow as hell when it's POV and then faster on the stick. Weird stuff.

Either way great video. I hope one day I'll be able to ride terrain like that. I'll need a guide on a tour of course :laugh:

Back to my groomers!
