If he didn't land this I would have nominated him for a Darwin Award!

This was during a contest. I would say hucking the backflip was planned before the sluff almost caught him.

I wonder if he knew there was an avalanche or if he first saw it during the backflip

Supposedly he didn't know the lanche was behind him until mid flip.  Still badass.

Does he win or lose for wrecking the whole bowl so that nobody had good snow to ski after him??

Wow.  Great video!  Swatch will get a lot of free advertising out of this video...it should go viral among the ski community.

Often think of big wave surfers when watching big mountain skiers. Certainly do watching that clip!

Sverre got worked pretty hard when filming The Way I See It (taken out by a slide on back to back runs a day apart).  I guess since then he's become slightly more comfortable around avalanches.  That was bad ass.
