Skiing with no limits

New for the winter season, Garmin is launching its VIRB Elite Wintersports Bundle for the cold climate adrenaline junkie in us all. Packed full of exciting accessories, the Wintersports Bundle offers skiers and snowboarders everything they need to capture winter adventures on camera.


The Red Dot Award winning VIRB Elite action camera is quickly becoming the chosen action camera for outdoor enthusiasts and gadget experts across the globe. Combining ease of use with extremely high quality, high definition (1080p HD) images, the VIRB Elite also has Digital Image Stabilisation and Lens Distortion Correction. It boasts a 16 megapixel CMOS image processor and the wide view lens enables different shooting modes, with 180° filming capability – so no matter how hard you hit the slopes or the après ski, your precious memories and impressive snow tricks can be captured forever.

The VIRB Elite is especially durable and waterproof up to one metre depth, and has a large instant record slider switch on the side, enabling control even when wearing gloves. Smartphone users can control the device using an app for iOS and Android devices, and when connected to Wi-Fi, users can upload and share their experiences with their social media hub.

Ski 2

With the VIRB Elite, thrill seekers can ensure that only the most action packed parts of the day are capture, by switching the camera to ‘Ski Mode’. Ski Mode enables the VIRB Elite to recognise the difference between going up in a ski lift and riding the slope, switching automatically from standby mode to recording.

VIRB Elite features built-in GPS, accelerometer and altimeter plus ANT+ TM wireless connectivity so users can track location, speed, elevation, temperature, cadence sensor and heart rate (using the separately available heart rate monitor). This data can be embedded into the video during editing, so when the adrenalin is pumping, users can record their location, speed and even their heart rate at the same time!

The VIRB Elite wintersports package comes equipped with a newly designed Low Profile Helmet Mount, Small Tube Mount (pole), Mount Base Kit (curved and flat) and 16GB microSD card. RRP: £329.99 – a saving of more than £30, if bought separately*.
