Eagle, Colo. (Jan. 23, 2013) - Drift Innovation, manufactures of the industry-leading HD Ghost, announce a partnership with The Front Range Ski Club, Colorado’s only ski area focusing solely on the progression of ski racing. The Drift HD Ghost, in conjunction with Sprongo Online Video Editing will implement a training tool for The Front Range Ski Club’s racing programs.
Four time Olympic Ski Racer and Front Range Ski Coach, Sarah Schleper explains, “The Drift HD Ghost camera is a definitive tool in the progression of our athletes. We use the cameras to give the racers a different perspective, checking tactics and technique.The HD Ghost camera easily attaches to our helmets, skis and ski poles. These POV angles are invaluable to our athletes’ development. Along with Sprongo, the medium in which our athletes can instantly see their videos online, we compare and analyze each skier, turning the action camera into a modern sports tool.”
Formally operated as Echo Mountain, the Front Range Ski Club is located in the hills above Evergreen, 45 minutes outside of Denver. Unlike former Echo Mountain’s freestyle skiing focus, The Front Range Ski Club will have an emphasis on ski racing progression. Area upgrades include a state-of-the-art training gym, fast-moving surface lifts, World Cup ski coaches and a video progression system featuring Drift’s HD Ghost and Sprongo’s online editing program.
As the most feature-rich and intuitive action camera on the market, the Drift HD Ghost will allow racers and coaches to easily review performance. The Ghost packs in industry-leading features including a two-way on/off remote with color coded LED display, built in Wi-Fi, continuous loop video recording and an integrated 2-inch Gorilla Glass® LCD screen for instant playback and sharing. HD Ghost features in conjunction with Sprongo online video editing means less time uploading video and more time practicing on the snow.
