Yeah, I don't use the helmet mount much, and if I do, the camera is usually pointed down more so it's not just a floating POV with no skier point of reference.
Not everybody likes the camera on a stick footage, but IMO it's a good way to get another perspective without relying on a 2nd person/fixed position shot. Ideally I would have at least 3 perspectives to transition between, maybe even 4 or 5, but I ski solo most of the time, and nobody's paying me for my crappy edits (not that they should), so I usually just settle for 2.
The five perspectives I'd want most, that are easy enough to accomplish (but not necessarily all with a POV camera) are (sort of in order of preference):
1. Chest Mount
2. Camera on a stick, facing the subject. It's pretty easy to vary the perspective by moving the camera from head-on, to side-on, or even behind the subject. Camera on a stick works much better for snowboarders than chest mount, since a snowboarder's chest is rarely faced square down the hill.
3. Fixed position with the subject skiing towards the camera and passing to right or left, and some zoom lens action.
4. Camera on a stick facing outward and following the subject.
5. Fixed position with subject skiing along-side, and away from camera and some zooming.
Some of the drone footage I've seen lately looks kind of cool, and is a hell of a lot cheaper than hiring a heli for the day like the big-boy producers do. Drones are where I draw the line on self-absorbed "look how rad I am" footage though, and I expect most resorts will ban them, if they haven't already. I suppose a drone could still produce some interesting angles in the BC where they wouldn't be as subject to regulation/banning, but my edits already scream "I'm a self-absorbed twit" loudly enough, without a drone following me to remove all doubt.
Anyway, footage is only half the battle. Editing is the other half, this is why I try to have multiple angles to cut between, so the viewer isn't looking at the same angle/perspective over and over, I'm sure most folks don't find my edits all that interesting anyway, but IMO they'd be ever worse if they only consisted of one angle/perspective.
Have fun with whatever you shoot, and hope you find some value in my suggestions. Also, don't be afraid to experiment; it's digital man! If you don't like, over-write! In the below clip, @1:01 I had the camera on the pole facing up, which I really didn't think was going to produce anything worthwhile except maybe a nice view of the sky, but was pleasantly surprised when I got home and viewed the footy. I didn't even start doing twisters until I turned 40, and good to know I can still crank 'em out at 52. Heh, I should add that disclaimer to every edit: "Warning, objects in this video are older than they appear".
