Growing up in Maine, there were always plenty of adventurous winter activities in which to participate. Skiing and snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating parties, ice fishing. You name it, we were outside doing it.
There were always some awesome moves being showed off on the mountain, or cool things we would have loved to capture while out riding a trail (hello, bears). But that was before smartphones, and most of the time you didn’t really even want to bring a camera, as they weren’t designed to take the beating of an active lifestyle. So when GoPro cameras came out, I thought “hey, it’s about time!”.
I actually won a GoPro 3 a couple of years ago and I have to admit that it’s a pretty cool piece of technology. Not only is it great to capture all your winter activities, throw it in it’s waterproof case and you can capture your water adventures, too. I really wish I would have had it back when I was in college and my friends and I did some snorkeling in the Bahamas.
