POV Video Of Skier Jumping Off Cliff To Escape Avalanche Is Predictably Awesome

From vlogger :

Matthias Giraud and Stefan Laude capture some of the most incredible content seen by GoPro as they hit the Alps like true heroes skiing the French backcountry while escaping a large avalanche on their tails!

That is freaking wild, man, wild. Or gnarly, either one. Not that I would ever find myself in this kind of predicament while I have a pair of skis strapped to my feet, but this video is now No. 2 on my list of “Reasons Never To Leave The Bunny Hill.” Number one being, of course, Sonny Bono, while “”Tangled Up In The Tow Rope With Icicle Snot Hanging Out Of My Nostrils” now slipping down to number three. It’s a list of fifteen items, but I think my point has been adequately illustrated without going any further. But if you’re curious, Hot Dog…The Movie is number fifteen.
