Helmet Camera Catches Moment Snowboarder Escapes Avalanche in Alps
Snowboarder Thomas Kray had a close call after being caught in an avalanche while exploring off-piste at Tignes in the French Alps.
Kray survived being swept away by the avalanche and over a 10-foot cliff thanks to his helmet and ABS avalanche airbags. “I chose to make this video for safety purposes, so that others protect themselves when they do off-piste,” said Kray.
