^The terrifying moment the slide releases.
A snowmobiler was swept away by a large avalanche he triggered while riding his snowmobile in Afton, Wyoming.
You can see the moment the crack forms and hear the bystanders verbally reacting to the slide.
David Snow: “Thanks to the fast acting friends and a helmet near the location of the body, everyone came out safe from this snowmobiler caught in avalanche. Avalanche occurred in Afton, Wyoming, USA.
Thankfully they are able to quickly located the injured snowmobiler by his helmet sticking out from the avalanche debris.
I sincerely hope that they were wearing beacons, but they’re lucky they didn’t have to use them.
What a crazy video.
