A bluebird day in the backcountry of Afton, Wy., goes from beautiful to scary in a matter of seconds when a snowmobiler triggers a big avalanche and goes for a long ride.

Fortunately, his buddies are quick to respond and he isn’t entirely buried. There is much to learn by watching these kind of videos. Stay safe, and keep learning.
