Ski Club

The Ski Club of Great Britain was set up in 1903, and has just celebrated 100 years of adrenalin and adventure on snow. When the Club started, over 100 years ago, its purpose was the same as today:

* to share ski information
* to encourage people to ski
* to have a great time skiing together in the mountains

The Club is for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities and provides its members with many valuable services, including skiing with other members in resorts, finding out essential information on where, when and how to go skiing, as well as discounts on all aspects of travel, accommodation, equipment and ski clothing.

They also have an admirable environmental policy.

Tony Hawk Helmet Cam

Another offering to let you video your own POV footage of stunts, the Tony Hawk cam is endorsed by the man himself. It has a few benefits over the previously mentioned Sports Cameras. Not only is it cheaper, but it’s self contained, recording onto an SD memory card. The basic unit only comes with a 32 meg card, but larger cards are fairly cheap, certainly cheaper than the Sports Camera’s required recording equipment.

Resolution is 640 by 480. There’s no video on the site to give an indication of its quality, but what I saw on the Helmet Headz stand at the Ski and Board show was quite good.
