On my lunch hour today, I climbed for 30 minutes up a small mountain and skied down through the woods. On the descent, I held my point-and-shoot camera in front of me to capture video. This meant I had to ski without poles, which I’m not used to doing. The results are only so-so. The clip is less than four minutes; apparently, the camera can accommodate only so much video. It truncated the first part of the descent, on the steeper part of the mountain. Anyway, this is just my first try. I hope to post other short videos in days to come. Incidentally, the tracks I’m following are mine from the day before. Click one of the links below to watch the video. The second one is for Macs.

where was this video taken
from a skier looking for new lines
Sam, that is classified information. Seriously, this line can take only a few runs before it gets skied off. There are better places to ski if you’re visiting the Adirondacks. Depending on your ability, you could try Avalanche Pass, Wright Peak, Marcy, the slides, etc.
