Avalanche Controller Kevin Fogolin has one of the coolest jobs on Earth.

Not only does he get to ski some of the most spectacular mountains in the best conditions accessed by helicopter, but also sets off explosives regularly, triggering massive avalanches (also by helicopter)!

This video by Salomon Freeski TV follows him on his job as he brings down some of the most impressive avalanches ever caught on film.
