Point of view
I would guess that one of the reasons I like running this blog is to try and get my point of view across. Kinda show off the mountains the way I see them, give readers my point of view. Well today i started filming with a POV (pointofview) camera. Its camera attached to a harddrive. It seems like the best quality for a head camera.TGR uses it!
I filmed about 30 minutes of head cam footage of which I will use 38 seconds, but it is exciting to have two angles on the action. It might make it seem like you are here with us.
Today we headed up Video peak. It was skied by about 15 people the other day and now has a new 25 cm on top. Absolutely no evidence of their tracks. We stood on the summit and waited for the clouds to break, they finally did and we were given a decent descent. We would have skied the main face but felt that there was much more loading on the leeward side of the ridge. So we skied the direct line which gets a bit more blown off. It was safer to ski what had less snow than that which had wind deposited slab.
Great turns and then we toured up to 8812 bowl and had a great 3500 foot run to the valley bottom. The sun broke through and gave us some great light.
Fun day to be filming with the head cam and I am starting to get enough footage for the first movie of the year. Probably have it ready for Dec 1.
all for now. I hope you like my point of view.
