If Santa didn’t bring you a new GoPro this Christmas like he did for most of Alta’s holiday skiers, then pull the trigger already and buy one! This isn’t just a camera made strictly for filming POV ski footage. It also produces great videos/images when used as a traditional camera. Weather you’re vacationing on the beaches of Thailand or slaying a spine in Alaska the Hero 3 will capture the moment just as good if not better than your Sony point-and-shoot. New to this year’s black edition, GoPro added a ton of features, mainly in the resolution/frame rate department. You can now pick from up to a 4K resolution (something that seems gimmicky to me as no one really owns a 4k TV yet) and up to 240 frames per second (great for super slow-mo shots). The new Hero 3 also comes in a much smaller and lighter package than the Hero 2. This is a big deal for me as my Hero 2 tends to cause my helmet to move around a lot due to its weight. The pricey ($399) black edition GoPro also includes the WiFi remote, something you had to pay ($79) extra for with previous models. If you’re looking to save a couple bucks or a couple hundred bucks then be sure to check out the GoPro White Edition ($199) and GoPro Silver Edition ($299). Containing about half of the performance specs as the black edition these two cameras will still blow your mind. So get out there and show us what you got. It’s time to go pro!
Retail Price (Black Edition): 399.99

As alluded to in the previous post about the 100″ base prior to Christmas, below is a compilation of our best POV footage from the Pre-Christmas storm cycle of 2010. We’ve got clips in here from all over the mountain. Christian wore the GoPro on his helmet, while Jesse and Gary took turns with the chest harness. The clip is a little longer than we would have liked, but there was just too much good footage to pass up. Particularly about four and half minutes in when Gary gets hung up on one of his favorite tree lines in thirds. Three somersaults later and he’s right back up as if nothing ever happened. And he more than redeemed himself on the next run with his line on “the spines” in west rustler.
What an awesome storm cycle this was. Maybe the best I’ve ever experienced in December. Looks like we’ll have a bit of sunshine though to start the new year. It shouldn’t be long at all before the next storm cycle kicks up. Bring on the Powder!
We are in the middle of another great stormcycle at Alta. On the 20th of December, 5 days before Christmas, we went over the 100″ base mark, with total snow accumulation of over 200 total inches. It’s going to be a very white Christmas. Check out the video below from the first day of the cycle (Wednesday the 15th). This was the first day using the GoPro HD Hero Cameras. We put the traverse into Eddies and then skied a few West Rustlers to finish out the day. Thanks to Christian for editing and putting some tunes to this clip.
We’ve got a ton more footage, but have been skiing so hard all day that we just haven’t had time to download and edit it all. Stay tuned…
