Sage's Favorite Helmet-Cam Footage

Sage's Favorite Helmet-Cam Footage

[ August 24, 2009 - 8:46pm ]
Until recently, Cattabriga-Alosa lived in Green Hills with Chris Minneci and skiing siblings Chris and Matt Collins. In the past five years, the group played a key role in developing gap jumps like Chad's and Pyramid in Grizzly Gulch, up the road from Alta. Now those jumps - over roads, pits, or gullies, some with landings on piles of mine tailings - are helping attract the next generation of athletes. "Gaps had obviously been done before, but Utah made them famous," Cattabriga-Alosa says.
Dek: 
Some good POV footage that won't make you nauseous.

The difference between bad and good helmet cam footage is all about the stomach. If watching it makes you feel like you're on a boat lost at sea, it's not good. This footage, selected by freeskier Sage Cattabriga-Alosa as the top entries in TetonGravity.com's V.I.O. POV ski and snowboard contest, is better than good. “After years of working with various POV set ups I have found that there are many factors that go into a sick shot," Sage says. "Cameras turn off, batteries die, lenses get fogged, angles can be too high or too low, an annoying speck lands on the lens...the list of potential botched shots goes on and on. But when it goes right, you can take your audience for a ride, and relive that amazing experience, that view, that feeling of the moment."
