I swear, every time I open my web browser there’s a new insane GoPro video. This one was taken by Canadian freeskiier Eric Hjorleifson, who attempted to ski a big mountain pillow line, set off an avalanche, and then had to ski through it.

Skiing through an avalanche is not a thing you can do, really, but Hjorleifson is okay. You can best see the avalanche starting at about the 0:22 second mark, and then see how terrifying it’d be to see an avalanche and realize you have no choice but to ski through it.
