Skier survives avalanche

COLORADO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Back country skier Lance Light survived an avalanche that he triggered Saturday morning, and it was all caught on video.

The video came from a camera mounted on his helmet.

Despite reports of dangerous avalanche conditions in Colorado, he and a friend decided to go for it.

Seconds after hitting the slope the snow gave way.

"I saw it fracture and I just tried to straight line it over the cliff and instantly deploy my air bag," said Light.

Experts in the area measured the size of the avalanche and found the snow was six to eight feet deep in some areas.

They say it could have very easily injured someone, or even worse, buried someone completely.
