Inbounds avalanche throws skier over cliff at Whistler

Check out this video of a skier triggering an inbound avalanche in off piste terrain at Whistler.

The skier ends up over a cliff but thankfully survives. Stay safe out there, people. It’s been an insane snowfall season filled with powder but with powder comes risk.

“Skied at spankys ledder [sic], took diamond bowl, traversed into Ruby bowl and went a little to the right” says the poster of the video on YouTube.
