Romanian Snow Boarder Rides Avalanche, Catches It All On GoPro

Updated: February 6, 2015

This Romanian mountain rescue – snow boarder thought he’d take a ride on some untouched powder and wound up nearly getting eaten alive by Papusa Mountain in Gorj, Romania.  Luckily he lived and luckily for us, he had a GoPro.  Much like cell phones, what the hell did people do before GoPro? Did we just take folks’ words for it? Who knows, but this is an epic first-hand experience of what it’s like to be taken by the power of an avalanche and live to tell about it.
