VIDEO: Why You Should Always Ride With A Buddy...

It’s terrifying to think how this might have played out if this snowboarder in Flaine, France was riding by himself when he got stuck upside down in a crevasse. Share this around and remember to always always ride with a partner if you are going off piste:

“Flaine, France. it had been snowing all night, and we woke to bluebird skies and about 500mm of fresh powder on the mountain. Riding Nirvana. The crevasse was only a few hundred yards off piste, and pretty much completely covered, invisible until i was right on it, and I wasn’t quick enough to avoid it. My son Jack was a hero, tried to free me at first, and did not hesitate to raise the alarm and get help. Three english doctors that we had just passed on the mountain came to my rescue, took care of Jack, and helped dig me out. I am eternally grateful to you. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday, and the perfect conditions continued.”
