I think the financial argument is very tight but for me i would not consider renting skis. Generally i fly either BA or lufthansa so ski carriage cost is not a problem. The biggest thing in buying ski's is finding the rite ones, i have bought a few white elephants before finding a pair I really connected with and i have bought two nice shinny pairs since which are still in the wrappers, someday i will use them!

Anyone have any suggestions for how I can mount a GoPro at the tip of my skis? I've seen solutions before but I have what seems to be a rare problem. My skis are not smooth on top, they have a rough texture. It seems this rules out all suction cups and adhesives. This is shot I've wanted to get but just can't find a solution. Could you mount on your ski boot top strap like the last picture in this link https://cdn2.peakdesign.com/catalog/product/cache/1/image/1800x/040ec09b1e35df139433887a97daa66f/c/p/cpov-7.jpg If your meaning the flat adhesive mounts from gopro then they do fall off! but the ski was a line prophet that wasn't a smooth flat surface like some other skis.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I have just bought the suction mount from gopro hoping it will stick to the ski with the hand held gimble aswell....i think i will leash it to the binding to be safe! I also tried a few years ago the standard adhesive pad but it came of on 1st turn!

I cant see the 5 holding its value for long. I have seen it discounted as low as £320 (argos) inc some freebies mid summer and back to full price when its replacement model comes out!

I cant believe o have just watched a video on how to pack a ski bag..... i need to get a life!!! I usually go flat, remember to jam your brakes up so they dont dig into the bottom of your bag (my bindings are quiver killer'd on so i remove my bindings completely). I also place my boots at the bottom beside the wheels on top of my skis. I have never had damage to my skis.... but i have been through a few bags. Currently on a thule ski bag, time well tell if it lasts longer than the predecessors!

What's the best way of mounting these things for skiing? Want to film others which probably means a stick of some sort? And a helmet mount for my own skiing , although I hate the telletubbie look After owning the 2nd generation of the hero which i was disappointed with I bite the bullet and bought the 5 hero. I cant say how big improvement it is with having a screen! I am planning on trying various positions this season inc around my shin, on the ski's (leashed) etc but i think most footage will be taken with the rucksack strap mount . http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/polarpro-gopro-and-smartphone-backpack-strap-mount-57424?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping&referer=PLA&cur=0&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInP3YxsDK1gIVUcayCh0AqQPlEAQYASABEgKgdPD_BwE I managed to pick up a brand new hero 5 for £290 (ebay) early summer, for what i need the 60fps @ 4k not worth another £210. I also bought a gimble which should be fun aswell!
You know it makes sense.

Whats wrong with the lecht, hour and half in car. job done...... Personally for your wifes first ski trip, i would be thinking more of Austria. Fly to either salzburg or innsbruck which opens up a lot of lovely resorts. Zell am see worth a look but other people on here has lot more recommendations. Have you tried the dry ski slope beside garthdee for a lesson?

welcome. I dont have a correct answer to your question but try and get yourself to one of the snow heads ski tests in October at either hemel or manchester would be a good start. Personally i prefer bindings mounted on quiver killer so i have one set of bindings on multiple skis even on a weeks holiday (depending on forecast i may take 2x sets of skis). I use the vist free binding and change brake widths to suit different skis. If you can work a screw driver its a very easy job! I am not a park person but i did buy a pair of coreupt skis in the 99euro bankruptcy sale a few years ago.... they where supposed to be decent in the park plus piste.....tbh they where pretty shit all round (maybe its my skiing!) Also dont get carried away with the years model of ski, very often this years ski s the same as last years ski with a new paint job. Just now is a good time to pick up a steal as companies are trying clear old stock before the new goes on sale.... I picked up a pair of new 16/17 blizzard brahma for £170 no bindings. I will mount them myself with quiver kiiller. if i dont like them i will offload after a weeks use for similar money!

Just a wee update, just back from majorca with the hero5 black. VERY happy with it and it so much more user friendly with the screen (old camera was a hero2 which I never really used) . New computer should be middle of week! Didnt use the gimbal that much so will need to play about with it a bit more before verdict.

@ rob@rar what fitttings did you use for attaching the camera to your ski? Pulled the trigger on the gopro hero 5 and g5 gimbal but realised my desktop pc (cheapest basic dell from their range 8 years ago) is woefully inadequate for 4k editing but my friend tells me the gopro app is fine for basic editing. What does everybody else use for editing?

@philwig nothing extreme I am just careless and felt the old housing gave the lense a extra protection but if they are changeable then no major problem. I am interested in the hero 5 with the feiyu g5 gimbol. Has anybody any experience with using a handheld style gimbol skiing other than using it as a selfie stick. Can it be attached to ski, chest mount etc?

Hi. I am looking for advice for a hotel/resort for a long weekend in December. The group would consist of two adult and two 4 year old girls, it's there first ski holiday but all four are planning ski lesons in a fridge. Direct flights from Manchester/Birmingham area would be a bonus with short transfers to resort. Size of area very low priority but good nusers areas. A luxury hotel with a pool and good food is a must. Ski in out/next to the lift is also a must. The altapura in val thorens ticks a lot of boxes unfortunately I thinks it's a bit long transfers for 3-4 nights. Any other recommendations welcome.

The car rental company charged me more to take the car out of Switzerland (zurich to st anton). It wasn't much but just another hidden charges from them😠

Just back from doing Zurich to st anton. The drive itself was no problem. Only problem was we booked sarrent car hire through a price comparison for zurich airport. The car depot was 15km away and was a pick up drop off shuttle that was a shambles. We also had to pay extra as we where driving out of Switzerland. I would drive again but pay more attention to the small print.

You have a valid point, but for me personally it does NOT make much difference between geneva, innsbruck or salzburg for flying. But the opener initially asked for help with accommodation and he was "ideally" looking at austria. :lol:
