Contour HD Boot/Ski Mount

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Has anyone ever built/made/bought something like this? I had an idea of a hose clamp and a goggle strap mount around my boot but that was pretty unsuccessful. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas??

 

There is a suction cup mount and a surfboard mount that look like they might work but would a suction cup stick to the top sheet??

 

Any comments or ideas would be appreciated!

See my review of this mount/clamp:  http://www.epicski.com/products/pedco-ultra-clamp/reviews/2135 that I use on my poles for those up the chairlift shots.  It will clamp tightly on some bindings for the "behind you" shots.   I thought about clamping it on the tails of my twin tip Stockli TTs, but never did.  Another option is to glue something to your ski for a clamp to attach to. 

 

I have no experience with a suction cup.  If you have a smooth top sheet and use a suction cup, I'd find a way to tether it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I already made a tether to attach it to my boot in the event of a catastrophic failure. If I could just figure out how to keep it from ejecting out of the mount, I think all would be well. I only have 11 days to figure it out before the big trip!

 

For a good laugh, watch this from a local hill in NW MO.

That was indeed funny, especially walking back to retreive the unit.  

 

It is a great camera assuming you adjust the exposure correctly before it is used.  It can be very bright on the snow at altitude, but once the exposure is correct the videos are fantastic.

One of the guys here, wetstuff, made one for the boot.  He had a problem with too much vibration, so he's changed it to wear on your arm:

Here is a stable option with strap mount:
