“We filmed this short of an avalanche that hit a group of athletes in the central area two days ago. Coming to places like this requires training and snowpack evaluation. Always be prepared with the proper avalanche equipment. You never know what can happen in the mountains.” – Translated text from the video.
The following footage shows an extremely close call in the central Chilean Andes on Wednesday. Luckily, the guy kept his skis angled towards the couloir wall or this could have ended much worse.
