He's a mythical figure.  Commonly reported to be whacking bushes somewhere in Pennsylvania.  Utah residents have reported occasional sightings as well.  And now under the gondola at Stowe!  He gets around.

Sweet blue jumpsuit. 

 

You should build a small stabilizing device and throw some motion tracking in after effects on that. It would be a cool angle to see stable footage of you following through all those tight spots you ski through.

We figured out a way to do groomer skiing stable after this video. any ideas on the stabilizing device?

check Youtube for basic designs...pvc and bearings. Might be hard if you don't have a homedepot around. If you could just get a little more stable on the mount, maybe try and balance it so the camera tends to look up the fall line, and then you could a little motion tracking on the editing side to smooth it out where needed. 

 

I am imagining how it would look in my head for your lines in the woods and I think it would look crazy good. I haven't seen it done that way yet.

Does the thread title mean you are on Soul Riders? (Asking bc I was thinking about them as an EC daily driver.)

Actually, I seem to like a pretty forward mount - demoed Shiros at 0 and +2, and will probably mount at +3.  I've noticed that manufacturer's lines seem to vary a lot, eg Ross's seem very forward, others more back. I've wondered whether that was a big part of people's impressions of the skis.

Best not to compare them to the Shiro... They're a very different creature.
