This guy got lucky. Very lucky.
Somehow, this guy skis right onto the initial wave of an avalanche that he triggered. He skis up onto the first wave of the avalanche, then proceeds to straightline through the breaking blocks of the avalanche, past the avy, and safely into the runout.
He’s pumped once he makes it to safety and he should be. The debris pile from the avy is large and deep. Had he ended up in that pile, it could have been a very bad situation.
Stay safe out there.
