Long before Lindsey Vonn was Tiger Woods’ girlfriend, she was winning gold medals at the Olympics for Team USA. Although Vonn has dealt with a series of injuries over the past few years, she got back in the winning groove in January when she won a race in Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy to become the most successful world cup skier in history. So how does the best ever record her runs using a GoPro camera? We’re glad you asked.
Below, we’ve shared a few of Vonn’s tips which appeared in a recent issue of Men’s Journal:
How to Use a Go-Pro For Skiing
- Place the camera on the gates and on her ski poles.
- The best way to get a third-person prospective when skiing with a partner is to use the extended pole or place the camera on the top of your skis.
- To make better amateur videos, it’s important always have the GoPro charged and stored in the right type of case. If you are shooting a video with sound, make sure to avoid a waterproof case which she says doesn’t pick up a lot of sound.
- With regards to mounts, use a helmet mount “to get a true prospective of what you are looking at during your run.” Additionally, a chest mount can be used to analyze the movement in your knees and capture lower body shots. Also, use a handlebar/seatpost mount which you can attach to your ski pole to take great selfies. Finally, amateurs should use a flat adhesive on your ski and to make sure that the connection point is dry for better adhesion.
