Getting caught in an avalanche is every backcountry skier’s worst fear.
It’s why we spend countless hours learning about avalanche safety gear, studying snow pack, and practicing rescue efforts to prepare for when a slide does happen.
The video below shows YouTuber bRo getting caught in a scary avalanche at an undisclosed location. The slide doesn’t look too bad at first, but it rapidly grows in size and velocity as the video continues.
The video includes both first-person and third-person views of the incident.
Dude is so lucky to be alive, and he probably feels extremely fortunate he was carrying his air bag that day. He mentions in the comments that he only suffered a minor knee injury.
