Thread Starter 

Small slide, snowmobiles rather than skis, but does speak to how quickly you can go from admiring the scenery to encased in white concrete.

Did he lay down before the slide hit him?

Why do you ask?  Is that suggested?

In the (fuzzy) video he appears to lay down just as the snow hits him - he may have been knocked over by the snow, or even the other 'biler - perhaps he was trying to grab him and sling him on to his machine?

Conditions are at a worst right now in Colorado. 

Here's 3 quick videos, one of them the above video, that have all spawned from the past storm in last 3 days.

He was fully buried because he lied down. Not the best move, lucky his buddies saw where he was or he could have been dead.

Edit: think about a wave pool, what do you do when the wave hits you. Jump...
