WATCH: Colorado Snowboarder Caught In Vazquez Gulch Avalanche

This video comes to us from the blog BeardedSplitboarder.com, where the author gives a detailed account of events and conditions leading up to the slide in May of 2017 in Vazquez Gulch (FIND HERE). Excerpt from article:

“I did a few turns and was picking up speed when the slope to my left began to crack. To my right were two large rocks poking out so i decided to go left so if I was swept off my feet I would not be dragged through them. I straight lined it hoping to escape but got swept off my feet. We believe the slide carried me about 200 feet. I was able to keep my face skyward and as I came to a stop I didn’t have any snow on my head so I threw a hand up so as the debris settled my partner would be able to see me quickly. My left side ended up being buried under about a foot of wet snow, while my right side was free.”
