    Active track didn't do a very good job of following me, but I got a few good shots of my buddy Eric.

    Fun watching you guys picking your way down those slopes. Not always easy picking your way down since the view from the slope is less informative that what the drone is seeing for upcoming terrain. Traversing on some of the steeper slopes appears to set off a fair amount of the surface layers. The drone offers an interesting perspective on how much surface ice falls into the hands of gravity once disturbed by the skis.

    What a cool video Jim. That’s some amazing skiing, and it’s cool how it seems like you are playing tag with your friend.

    Thanks for the comments guys. This was the first time I brought the drone on my favorite little ski tour. As you could see the surface snow was a bit slushy, but still skied quite well. Those sluffs on the the steep roll-overs can be troublesome, but were't big enough to burry you.

    I still have a lot to learn/practice shooting ski drone shots. As much fun as it is to watch afterwards it certainly adds weight to my pack, takes time to deploy and put away again, and your partners have to be into it and cooperate.
