Hi Gang, managed to get in a few early season turns. Rusty but felt good. Interested in what you see. I have my own ideas but throwing it out to the pros.
My "selfie stick" is an old school XC pole. I mounted a swivel head from a $15 mini tripod on the end (the uber cheap plastic tripod heads break - trust me) and a cell phone tripod adapter (Joby). If you take a hair tie, you can lock the phone in the cradle.
I use this stick to video racers and students on their own phones. The stick allows good close-ups while maintaining a safe distance from the athlete/student. My own phone is in a life-proof case. This is a pretty good product - I have no affiliation other than as a satisfied customer.
Anyhoo, here is me headless skiing. Very soft snow on a very mid pitch, Turn down the obnoxious wind noise. Do your worst. -Pat
