Finding creative solutions to uncommon challenges

I have a friend who has cerebral palsy and loves extreme sports.  (I know – awesome, right?!)  I want to make sure she can get some killer footage of her adaptive skiing experience this year.  I have a GoPro Hero 6 that I can loan her, and I’m trying to figure out how best to mount it so that she gets the best footage.  Ideally, I think a helmet mount would be good, but she doesn’t own her own helmet.  I, however, have a ski helmet that she could use if it fits her.  I wouldn’t have any problems attaching a mount to my ski helmet.  So that’s one idea.  Another idea is a chest harness mount.  The great thing about GoPro is that they make all sorts of mounting systems for just about any application you can think of, and this kind of mounting system might work out well, too.  Since she has her hands free and is strapped into a bobsled-type ski device, a chest harness might work out well because she can have it secured over her coat and still be able to press the record button on the GoPro when she’s ready to collect some footage.  We’ll see when the chest harness mount gets here if that system will work or not.  I just want her to get some good, quality footage that she can make some cool movies out of to watch year-round and I’m trying to figure out the best way to do that.  I want to thank GoPro for the wide variety of mounting systems that they sell while I’m at it.  Shout out to GoPro – you make a lot of things possible for people!  No, if you’re wondering, I’m not sponsored in any way by anybody.  I just think that, when a company or an individual is doing something well, you should tell them about it.  Anyway, I’ve got until the 25th of January to figure out the best way to hook my friend up so that she can have some great memories to look back on…literally!  We’ll get it figured out.  Of that, I have no doubt!
