Shooting while skiing
10

Anyone had good luck shooting on the slopes? I have an old GX7, which I find to be winter-jacket pocketable but not weatherproof to inspire confidence or have the battery last in the cold. I more recently got a G85, which I think would function a lot better handling-wise , AF-wise, and for stabilized video, but I don't really want to have to take my backpack off (in the backcountry) every time I want to get a shot or have to carry it "naked" when riding the lifts with my kids. I also have an old "tough" P&S which I've enjoyed being able to grab out of my pants pocket, but the image/video quality isn't as good as m43.

Thinking about this winter, I guess I've narrowed it down to finding the best way to carry my G85 (and 12-60 or 12-32) or maybe picking up a used and older-model RX100 to throw in my pocket. Thoughts on different carrying options like holsters, etc.? Other considerations?

Thanks in advance. Picture for attention:
