“During Nendaz Freeride 3* FWQ an avalanche occurred after the passage of 20 athletes who landed in the same area. It reminds us that this could happen everywhere even if the face is secured.” 

Gnarly footage out of Switzerland where an avalanche broke loose during a competition run at the Nedaz Freeride World Tour qualifying event. Thankfully it looks like the skier was able to ride away unharmed after an uncontrolled descent on top of the debris. Close call.
