As Lucky as you can get!

Here's a nice bit of filming that's still a bit disturbing to watch but well worth seeing through to the end.  They do say in the alps that there are two often used types of avalanche control "Gazex & "Swedex" this film being the Swedex.

Not sure what to take from this film.  Who rescues the last man if he takes a line that pops.  Its often long hard hoof back up if buddies go down which costs time.  Maybe someone had stayed on a safer line.  He obviously had a good air pocket otherwise he was panned!  Anyway watch it and learn.
