He tore some intercostal muscles, displaced a few ribs, and broke his board in many places, but most importantly he made it out alive. While this experience was terrifying for Travis, he used this incident to educate others on what happened and what they should do if something like this happens to them. Check this video out for a play by play of the avalanche from Travis and remember to always stay safe on the mountain!

“I knew that cliff was below me, this is going to suck, but gotta brace for impact. I probably went 80 to 100 feet,” stated Travis Rice pertaining to this avalanche.
