Whoooweee! That was a close one. This video out of Chile this week, which is experiencing its February in the Southern Hemi at the moment, is a such a good reminder that the best backcountry terrain, the stuff we all love to ride, is also probably the most avalanche prone. Chilean pro Manuel Díaz posted this video on the interwebs and it’s enough to scare one sane. Apparently, he was riding somewhere near Santa Teresa, which is supposed to be some of the best out-of-bounds, and backcountry riding in Chile. He’s fortunate enough to see the avalanche come at him from above and it looks as though it just clips him.
Other than this avy, Manuel looks as though he’s having one helluva season. Check out his page, below:
