Everything seems to be going great for this snowmobiler until everything goes really, really wrong.

Posted on Facebook by Don Wallace of Montana, the video shows a snowmobile rider charging up a steep chute until he misses a narrow gap at the very top.

Then, man and machine flip and fall, together, down the narrow rocky ravine for what seems like an eternity. The chaos begins at about :45.
