Took the snomo's out with my good friend, Eric Schweitzer, on Saturday. Cruised up the South Fork of the Sacramento River to Cliff Lake - about 8 miles. Parked the sleds on the South Fork, the road into Cliff looked sketchy! Skinned in the 1.5 miles to middle Cliff, and followed the right hip up to the summit. Had a nice lunch overlooking the Trinity Alps, and finished off with 2 feet of freshies in the trees down to cliff. While we were hiking, some snowmobilers on 1000cc sleds punched their way up the road to Cliff Lake and had some nice riding for sure! We skinned out on their sled tracks until we ran back into our skin trail which was nice, since blazing trail in the deep pow took a little extra effort. The actual snowboarding footage was filmed with our miniDv recording unit using a 520tv line res helmet camera. I did not have a glare or lens cover on - and you can still see the washed out colors, what a shame. The rest of the footage was filmed in HD (High definition @ 1440×1080i) with a Sony HC1, then down converted to SD in Vegas Video. Enjoy. -chad

Nice shots, I love helment cams. I am shooting with a sony dvr-dvd301 . I have rca jacks that can be put in the "input mode" . I believe my camera has a lanc input for control, do you have any recommendations as far as camera packages? You guys seem to do more helment cam action than anyone. Way to charge

Those are some nice viddy shots! I always struggle with mine because it invariably involves hauling extra weight and bulkiness over very long distances, when not much time or effort can be wasted. Not to mention that my camera is a dinosaur, not exactly an HD-cam. Looks like you guys pretty much have it dialed though with the sled + camera. Good stuff.

Great angle!

Did you just have the cam facing backwards as you picked your lines and had the rider follow you? Or are you just that good at riding blind?

Sick!

very nice shastariffic,

Is that near *arbl* Mtns? If so, I'm so jealous. Been wanting to get up to Boulder Peak in the spring.

That terrain looks so sick.

Hey Shastariffic thats too cool footage. I think I know the guys who sleded in there, saw them at BillyGoats on Wed night, they bailed on the mountain because of the wind scour went to Cliff and said it was sweet -- guess you already knew that. Never done Cliff, would love to, Deadfall as well.

Lemme know if you ever need help breaking trail. I'll be headin to Castle either Sat or Sun, depending on the weather. Did several laps at Castle last weekend it was on fire but I was the sole splitter as far as I could tell, really wanted to share the stoke with someone.

Hey shastariffic, how do you like that HC1? It's a little slow on "boot-up", isn't it? I've missed a few shots because of that. I guess the near-film-quality makes up for it :-)

Good job on the helmet cam footage, it's really smooth. I assume you were on skis? Whenever I helmet cam on a snowboard, I always get that side to side motion...
