POV Camera Captures Skier Swept Up By Avalanche

September 24, 2009

One of the most interesting things about point-of-view footage is that it occasionally captures something totally unexpected. Like when you're skiing down fresh powder in Haines, Alaska, and you suddenly find yourself buried alive in a massive avalanche.

The footage is some fairly heavy stuff, but this guy was actually pretty lucky - his friends spotted him almost immediately, and as the film shows, he was eventually dug out largely unscathed.
