WATCH: Skier’s helmet cam captures terrifying avalanche

 

While skiing Guardsman Pass in Park City, Utah last week, a man saw his life flash before his eyes. Wearing a helmet camera, the skier glides over a small ledge and then things took a turn for the worst. 

An avalanche forms beneath him and the skier starts flying down the mountain at high speeds as snow comes tumbling down. The Utah Avalanche Center estimates he was moving at nearly 30 miles per hour. 

Finally, the skier comes to a stop and for a few frightening moments the camera captures him screaming for help as he’s trapped beneath the snow. 

His friends acted quickly and managed to unbury him before things turned ugly. The skier escaped without any injuries.
