Report Accidents and Injuries
|Off topic: Backcountry ski incident
Not strictly Chockstone forum material, but given that a number of Chockstoners have avalanche issues in their minds at times...
and it is pretty emotional viewing even if you don't ever play in snow...
That vid was frightening. ~> Unreal how fast that avalanche splintered the slab below his skis.
It makes me wonder why he did not stop once he saw (if he did), the slope to the right
>see the sluff to the skier's right immediately start building
... I stopped the vid a number of times and checked the footage, and it is clear that it cracked and went the same way, before it did similar under him after he pushed on for several more turns.
When we play with nature, it has a way of putting our mortality back into perspective, ... & four+ mins of breathing under snow with him underlines that.
Jesus - that nearly made me cry.. you can proper hear him panicing - that's scary. Bloody lucky. x
