The Inertia

“Thanks a lot pal!” This guy had to be thinking that after his friend triggers a slide above him in Alaska trying to high-line a slope. The newly-released POV footage shows the girth of the avalanche as it plummets towards him.

“Triggered a lose slab!,” reads the description from the Burgshrund Boyz YouTube page (a merry band of backcountry skiers, it seems). “This is a video I captured on my GoPro a few years ago. I felt really dumb about the lack of precautions but I want to post it so others can see the dangers out there! My buddy was riding his snowmobile and I ended up running from the slide.”

Nothing like a wall of white to get your heart pumping.


Only the best. We promise.
