This backpack cam shot is my favorite so far this season, mostly because
it shows more of the valley, and oh yeah…sickbird POWDER!!!

It’s been a snowy last few days up here in JH, which has been awesome, and if you could withstand the 2-3 second long whumps in the snowpack while breaking trail, there was some great powder skiing to be had on the first bluebird(ish) powder day of the year today. I’ve been fiddling with a backpack cam mount, becasue I think they are cool, and here are some screen grabs from today. I still need to make some adjustments, but I think there will be some good stuff in the end. Enjoy the sun!

I don’t know about you, but I like the backpack cam more than the POV on the helmet/head. The contraption it takes to dial in the angles takes a bit of fiddling (and is heavy/bulky) to get it right. I think I’m getting closer though. The cracks are in the snowpack draw my attention here…whump!

I don’t think I have to explain this one. 🙂
