Avalanche hits skier in scary helmet cam video
The skier in this video captures footage as how he skied into an avalanche that he released. Luckily, Eric Hjorleifson, who remotely triggered an avalanche as he started skiing down a pillow line, didn’t fully consume him. But the video is scary nonetheless, as you can hear him breathing heavily after he manages to avoid being buried.
He apparently only twisted his knee a bit in the incident. Eric is a professional freeskier from Canmore, Alberta.
