Snowboarding at Big White Ski Resort

Santa Clause was good to me this year. He left me a GoPro Hero3+ camera under our Christmas tree. What a nice guy! I’ve wanted a GoPro camera for years but it always landed in the ‘nice to have but don’t need it right now’ bucket. I’m so glad Santa thought I was a good boy this year and rewarded me with this fun little toy.

We had an issue with the original camera that Santa left under the tree, so we had to wait for his hardworking elves to make a new one and ship it via FedEx (reindeer don’t fly in January, who knew?). Fortunately, the camera arrived the day before our trip to Big White Ski Resort, so I was able to test it out on the slopes.

The first day we went snowboarding we caught some new snow, which was great for riding but didn’t make for very good video and images. That, and I messed up some of the recordings trying to figure out how to use the camera. Our subsequent days on the mountain were brilliant sunny bluebirds, great for capturing video.

The video below was captured while cruising down a couple fast groomers on the Bullet Chair line. It’s a fun section in the mornings when the sun is climbing over the Okanagan Valley.
