Camera shock and vibration (Canon D60)

    Hello Everyone,
    This season, I plan on going snowboarding with my new camera body and have
    been wondering of a better way to carry the camera without having to
    separate the body and lens. Previous seasons, I have worn a backpack with a
    fleece that wraps around the two parts. Keeping the camera together as one
    unit would have been horrible had I fallen on my back, I figured two flatter
    objects would be better than one irregular shaped object.
    My thought this season is to mount my camera bag to the snowboard. Of
    course the snowboard is subject to some vibration as you're riding down the
    mountain and some shock if you take a big hit whether it be straight into
    the snow or otherwise.
    My question is how much shock and vibration can cameras take? I assume
    they can take a substantial beating but of course if you can avoid it, then
    that would be better. My camera bag is one that is foam padded (it's a
    canon bag, forest green colored, I'm sure most of you know what it looks
    like or one that looks similiar) and has foam inserts to divide it into
    If anyone has any thoughts, please let me know.
