Ziptrek Whistler, BC

We were traveling recently in Canada, vacationing in Whistler, British Columbia, on a snowboarding trip. We took a day off from the slopes to try a zipline tour provided by Ziptrek in the temperate rain forest between the Blackcomb and Whistler peaks. I brought along a GoPro HD Hero Video camera, as well as a Canon G9 with CHDK enabled. Katie and I took turns with the different cameras. The GoPro HD Hero was set to record at 60 frames per second at 720p. I put together a quick video from the results. We were lucky as there was plenty of snow the previous days before our ecotour on the ziplines, and the forest was completely covered in snow. It gave a very unique contrast in the pics and video, but also different than most who go on the zipline.
