It's man vs. nature vs. self vs. poor decisions.

These snowmobilers in Wyoming decided to film their friend riding up a slope, which even to our inexperienced eyes seems like a recipe for disaster. Turns out, it was lucky for him that they were there. He triggered an avalanche that totally buried him in snow, and his friends only managed to dig him out just in time.

The most amazing part is that this whole epic story begins and ends in a minute and a half. You could microwave a Hot Pocket in the time it took this guy to almost die.
