This snowboarder was riding in the backcountry in Tignes and triggered an avalanche. He managed to release his airbag and could prevent himself from being completely covered. Definitely some scary moments for this guy.
Always go out with the right gear (avalanche beacon, shovel and probe) and always check the latest avalanche forecast and adapt your plans to it. If you don't have the right knowledge, go out with a mountain guide!
