Stuck in the snow

This is a fairly terrifying video of a skier stuck in an avalance, recorded by the video camera attached to his helmet:

The run starts a minute in, and you may want to skip the middle if you’re claustrophic (don’t worry, there’s a happy ending, at about 6 minutes in). Kottke found the video, and posted a primer on avalanche survival.
