POV avalanche - MOVIE
This ia a good reality check for those heading out early season - have you practiced? and better yet have those who you are going ski touring with practiced?
This is what the person who was caught in this slide had to say:
This is the footage of me getting buried in an avalanche in Verbier, Switzerland on the 28th of february in 2011. My friends spotted and excavated me within five minutes even though I was buried at a depth of between 1.5-2 metres. Luckily I was wearing the right equipment and managed to create an air pocket in front of my mouth by holding my hands in front of my face when the avalanche stopped moving.
Uploaded this for everyone to watch and learn. Stay safe friends!
