Snow Bike at the Chill Factore
One Friday morning we had an hour to film our mates who had just built themselves a ski bike. The Chill Factore (a.k.a. the Manchester Alps) were very kindly letting us test the bike out on their slopes before the centre opened. We didn’t have long to film but we made use of unusual angles and lots of gadgetry. We filmed using a Panasonic GH2 & GoPro HERO’s 1 & 2.
About the bike: The idea was to make a mountain bike into something capable of sliding down pistes, and snow covered hills, in such a way that the bike could turn back into a bike, and also ideally the result should not be catastrophic failure, injury to rider or other snow users etc. It was a big success and a lot of fun.
