Damn lucky that others were around, good job by the first responders whoever they were
you go glen coco
Meh I’ve jumped in deeper snow
Shoulda' stayed there
Im glad that he is ok, but each one of them should have had a shovel, probe and avalanche transceiver as well as the skills to use them in case of an emergency such as this. If anyone wants to know more about avalanche safety the Canadian Avalanche Association is a great place for info. http://www.avalanche.ca/cac/
they might have had that, but its not like the needed to look for him and he wasnt really buried that deep
Good point — 95% of backcountry skiers or snowboarders would never go out without a beacon, shovel, and probe. Just because you're on a sled doesn't mean you aren't susceptible to the same risks as those of us on skis/boards, and you need to be adequately prepared and educated. The majority of people killed by avalanches are actually snowmobilers for that exact reason (http://avalanche.state.co.us/acc/acc_us.php)
they were carrying shovels, you can hear them shout for one after they found him.
Yes, but each person should have had a shovel if they were equipped properly. The reason for this is the person with the rescue equipment might get buried, injured or separated from the group.
They all had beacons, shovels and probes.
He's got friends in… the right places.
Not much of an avalanche.
doesn't need to be
Ah yes, the type of person that would say just a .22 if it was a video of someone getting shot. Doesn't matter could have felt like it was 20 feet deep to the guy under it.
you can also drown in an inch of water, it doesn't take much to get you killed
I liked the little golf clap at 00:14.
thats what set the avalanche off!
That was my first thought! xD
I didn't look as if he got hit that badly, however I think this gives a good indication of how dangerous getting caught in a avalanche must be if you were on your own, as when they get to him not only is he packed in tight by the snow, but it also looks like he can't really move. That may sound silly but when I picture myself getting stuck in an avalanche I always used to think I would have some freedom of movement no matter how little…Having said that he did just get swept away in a blink of an eye so a little rest it probably needed
Well said. I think if the guy with the camera hadn't been looking directly at him when he got covered they would have taken a lot longer to find him.
Except the guy with the camera didn't find him, genius…
Thanks for setting me straight internet police boy. Now go back to spanking it.
Best thing you can do if you get caught in one is flail around when the snow stops moving. You don't have much time before it solidifies, but the intent is to create a small pocket around you so you can breathe for a little while while waiting to be rescued.
This would have been a perfect chance to improve the gene pool by leaving him there. Idiot had it coming … another Darwin Award candidate.
Because "high-lining" on snowmobiles has started avalanches and buried drivers over and over, killing many of them. If they keep tempting avalanches, they've got it coming.
I can tell u do alot in life.
not all of us like to stay nice and safe in our moms baasement like you. save darwin the trouble and off yourself
Why don't you improve the gene pool and kill yourself
looks like the other guy ran over him and buried him with snow. Am I seeing it wrong?? Or was it an avalanche that you cant really see?
Thanks Katie! Finally saw it @ :33 look to the right of the snowmobile driving down the hill and it looks like a big wave of snow.
It took a couple replays to actually see the avalanche, I thought the guy on the snowmobile ran over him at first
Stampede pass can be nasty! That's why you always go out in numbers!
The idiot decides to cut the snow at the top of the hill and proceeds to drive under it. Really? He deserved to get buried
This sounded way more dramatic than it really was. -_-
dude … we need shovels >>> other dude SHOVEELLSSSS !!!!!?!?!?! SHOVEEELSSSSS ?!?!?!? LOL
Thank you for some other informative web site. The place else could I get that kind of information written in such an ideal way? I have a undertaking that I am simply now running on, and I’ve been on the glance out for such info.
Whenever I get a haircut I ayalws feel a lot different at first, even though I usually only get 2-3 inches off (that isn’t a lot compared to how long my hair is). No one can tell when I’ve cut my hair. But I do it myself because I don’t have any layers so it’s pretty easy.But anywho (goodness, enough about me! this is YOUR blog!), your hair looks awesome!
