I tried holding the camera to my eye, but the video ended up mostly me looking at the terrain as I would to ski, as I am skiing and my pee brain can't help watching where I'm going.
I tried holdig the camera from the top at waist level, keeping my shoulders as square as I could to the hill and try to keep my right arm still and pointed (gut feeling) at the subject. This worked okay but hard to get a full run of subject.
Holding the camera hand pole under your arm with the wrist strap still on seemed to assist in stabalizing and direction of shoot by Holding the pole and camera in unision as best as possible. My buddy did this for one run and it worked well keeping things stable and in shot. you see his pole tip in one shot.
I then tried holding it normally but not looking through the view finder or the screen and simply hold it in front of your face and look down the "barrell" to line up with the subject. This lets you still check the terrain and keep an eye on the shot. Hard to keep still but seemed to work better.
I still say give me a roll of duct tape and just put the camera on top of you head and tape it down.
