My Go-Pro HD has tons of artifacts in the pictures, especially if it gets the sun near the lens. I think the wide angle lens is to blame.
Maybe it's possible to build a shade around the mount so that it can't get hit directly so easily by the sun. This might cure a ton of the artifacts. Of course it becomes a lot less friendly, but if you are mounting it on a ski, it shouldn't matter. It wouldn't be hard to do... maybe even use an old lens shield from a defunct lens.
I never know what buttons to push, and usually end up in some nefarious menu. I've started carrying instructions just to stay out of the menus.

"ghost" of light, usually 3-5 of them if the sun is NOT on the lens, but above or behind.
If the sun is in front, it looks like a purple line from the top of the picture to the bottom. I've seen it on a few now.
The sound is pretty crackly on the gopro too.

nothing wrong, as far as I can tell.
I'm going to try and film next time without the waterproof case by mounting it away from the ski and see what happens.
