What is it Like to be Inside an Avalanche?

A skier with a camera filmed it. Fortunately, he made it out.

Chris Bilbao of Portland, Oregon was skiing in the Monashee Mountains in British Columbia when he was swept away by a small avalanche. Bilbao and one of his friends were wearing chest-harness cameras to capture their ski adventure.

When Bilbao finally came to a stop, his friend was able to snowboard down and help him.

No one was injured in the avalanche. I doubt the same can be said about his underwear.
