i use mine almost everyday i go skiing and just keep it in my pocket when im not using it, as long as you charge it and make sure you have an empty card it really isnt a hassle. Ive used chest mount, pole mount, helmet front and side mount and all seemed to turn out pretty good and ive gotten alot of sick shots this year.
here is a link to an edit from earlier this season of just a few shots ive gotten with mine, its definately worth it if you actually remember to bring it places
Wait, i know. the best use of the gopro is at parties¨! u can get the most amazing crotch shots and beer pong footy, and everything looks cooler on a wide angle lens. plus you can never destroy it

I got one for christmas this past year and the only time I use it is when I go backcountry which is maybe 5 to 10 days out of the season cause other then backcountry and park skiing is really not worth filming.
When I do use it is pretty sick. Im also new to video editing so I don't think I fully appericate the gopro to its full potential... so was it worth the $300 for me proably not, but it is pretty cool.
but if you think or know you will use it, might as well get one. but if not it is proably not worth it
