CHAMONIX, France – Incredible footage from Chamonix Ski Resort went viral last week, showing a large avalanche which nearly hit six skiers. The footage, recorded by mountain guide Gabriel Mazur, included two separate angles, with only one forcing its way into the public eye.

The video below begins with the first angle of the avalanche, which there’s a decent chance you’ve already seen. Keep watching to see the second angle, recorded high above the slide.

Two views of the same serac fall from Glacier de la Noire. No-one was on the uphill track below. How lucky. Life often hangs on very very thin shoe string.” – Gabriel Mazur
