Snowboarder in Whistler Survives Avalanche with Inflatable Backpack

 

Thanks to an inflatable backpack this snowboarder is still alive. He got caught in a Whistler backcountry avalanche while out snowmobiling and snowboarding with his buddies. The video shows you what getting caught in an avalanche is like. Not everyone is so lucky. Be careful out there and always be prepared with as much safety equipment as you can.
