WATCH: Skier Narrowly Escapes Massive Avalanche in French Alps

Unfortunately I don’t parle français so the dialogue is lost on me but judging by the chairlift in the early part of this video I’d say these skiers are somewhere around Courchevel Ski Resort in the French Alps.  The snow looked fresh and the crew was having a picturesque big mountain blue bird ski day until a member of the crew triggered a massive avalanche shortly after dropping in for a line. Thankfully the skier had his wits about him and traversed to safe zone, avoiding getting swept away. Very close call.
