VIDEO: Alaskan Snowmobiler Recalls Rescue After Fatal Avalanche

“One of the hardest things we did that whole time is when we first took off his helmet, seeing his face for the first time, because we had so much hope you know.”-Jackson Meyer

Jackson Meyer sits down with KTVA 11 to tell the absolutely heartbreaking story of a snowmobiler death caused by an avalanche in the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. We often hear about people dying in avalanches but rarely are they humanized quite to this extent. Please watch this and consider it the next time you head out into avalanche country.  Stay safe out there and KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.
