If like us you watch a whole load of ski videos everyday, then no doubt in your time you will have come across countless tedious POV edits, which generally leave you wanting more action and less shaky shots of the white ground.

With the help of a 3rd person mount, Alex Meliss from South Tyroll approaches a self edit a little differently and we'd have to say definitely for the better.

Are 3rd person mounts the way forward do you think?
