Snowboarder Is Saved From an Avalanche by an Inflatable Backpack

Helmet cam footage captures snowboarder Tom Oye in Whistler, British Columbia being saved from an avalanche by an inflatable backpack he deployed once the ground began to fall from beneath him.

The Black Diamond Halo 28 JetForce Avalanche Airbag Pack kept the snowboarder above the mass of sliding snow, and he escaped unharmed as another snowboarder and snowmobile rider arrive to check on him.
