In the latest tease for its to-be-released Karma unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), GoPro went to the ski slopes in Aspen, Colo., to offer a glimpse of what the aircraft will be capable of.

In a YouTube video from Jan. 31 (seen below), GoPro used the Karma to get some aerial footage of freeskier Bobby Brown in action at Aspen Snowmass. The company notes in the description that it obtained regulatory permission for the flights.

Although the footage shows the drone’s view, GoPro remains mum on the details of the aircraft, which the footage offers no views of.

In November 2014, the Wall Street Journal first reported that the company was planning a line of drones. At a Re/Code conference in 2015, GoPro CEO Nick Woodman confirmed the news.

In December, the company released the name of its future quadcopter, the Karma, in a video entitled “GoPro: Karma is Coming.”

The Karma drone is expected to arrive sometime in 2016.
