First helmet-cam go a bust

Well, now I know what the Wright Brothers went through.
We found a willing skiier, Liz from Saratoga High, but our challenge was getting the camera secured to her helmet. It took several tries and about 30 minutes before we sent her down the slopes.
Nothing to report on the camera, we missed the "On" button direction and it only lasted through a few gates.
A friend is grabbing his duct tape from down the hill and Saratoga coach Cindy Parker has volunteered one of the varsity boys to take a run through the slalom with it.
Don't worry Reda, the camera is advertised as shockproof and waterproof and passed with flying colors.
The old timing shack was open to my surprise, so I ducked in while the coaches change the course from the giant slalom to the slalom.
Time for some water, fruit and trail mix. Since I just treked halfway up Mach earlier, I guess I can officially call myself a health nut!
