NEW VIDEO: What it's like to get buried in an avalanche

Extraordinary helmet cam footage of a skier setting off down the hill.

You can clearly see the snow breaking between his feet and before long it engulfs him.

What follows is four-and-a-half claustrophobic minutes of the skier trying to breathe under the snow until he's saved.

We have LFTOer drg andy to thank for alerting us to this video.
