As the days get shorter and the leaves begin to fall, a fever begins to sweep across the land. No, not the seasonal virus that kids bring home from school, but the pulsing anticipation for white cap mountains and the crunch of fresh snow below your feet. No one suffers from this plight more than GoPro’s ski and snowboarding athletes, who battle the fever year around, zigzagging the planet in search of some medication.
As temperatures drop across the Northern Hemisphere, and the bare mountains await their winter blanket, GoPro’s finest ramp up training, drop new video parts and keep a steady eye on the forecast at altitude.
The 2017-2018 snow season is shaping up to be a big one for the GoPro team: snowfall predictions, major competitions and a couple brand-new GoPro cameras to capture epicness will be keeping the crew plenty busy. For all of you who may need a refresher on who they need to be following to hype you up for the upcoming season, check out the team below.
