When the opportunity to ‘ride along’ with the snow safety team presents itself, I jump at it. Which is how I wound up on Pinecone Ridge yesterday morning at a very early hour (not much after 7am) – tagging along to watch our team make the slopes safe for us all to ski and ride. I’d brought along my Droid phone with the hopes of testing some live streaming. Unfortunately the winds on the ridge top were cranking so hard that it was impossible to shoot any of the bombing, but I did get this Qik video of some of the patrollers skiing down afterwards:

The quality isn’t ‘epic’, but to me, this shows that livestreaming  the opportunity to provide unique and real time video connections that can show very interesting aspects of the resort industry.
