“Scariest experience of my life thank God Jason Rubio was right there definitely could’ve been a different ending. I’m very thankful to walk away from this.”

Terrifying moment caught on camera as snowmobilers in Wyoming triggered an avalanche and got buried in snow. The Charlotte Observer reports John Sievers was swept away in the avalanche south of Jackson. Thankfully his friend had an eye on him and quickly dug him out. Sievers said he yanked his avalanche bag, but it didn’t deploy.

“My avalanche bag didn’t work I pulled the handle like my life depended on it and it didn’t deploy.”

To better understand when and why avalanches happen and how you can safely have fun in the mountains, we highly recommend making use of the resources @ KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.
