Re: Skier outruns avalanche

He was so lucky - rule numero uno in an avalanche, don't try to outrun it but go directly to the side.
Exactly. He did apparently, at least as I see it on the video, the possibility to get to his right into the cover of those rocks. But he apparently started the avalanche himself and wanted to do a show. My guess is that the whole thing became a bit narrower than planned. But all this is just guessing.

Whatever, I admired his splendid skiing style. Reminded me of my brother who also did skiing that way, and at times also launched a bit silly stunts.
