Watch a Man Almost Suffocate and Die in Avalanche [VIDEO]
If you don't ski very much, you might not think this looked very dangerous. My coworker, who worked around a ski resort, pointed out that most avalanches "don't look like a big deal" but his friends were racing against time. He skier was suffocating under the snow and his friends only had minutes to dig him out.
Always ski with a buddy...and a shovel.
