Buried alive in powder

A close call at Whistler is making the rounds on social media this week.

Nigel Landon Beaupre shot GoPro footage of his ski experience at Whistler on Sunday.

The close call shows Beaupre filming as a friend jumps off a cliff but then he has to fly into action when the snowboarder lands upside down and is buried in all the powder!

Beaupre's Facebook page shows the video and a post saying, "It's not every day you have to dig your friend out of the snow to save his life... let alone get it all on GoPro... It just goes to show how quick things go from having a great time to near-tragic experience. 60cm+ overnight is as real as it gets. Watch video until the end to see the terrifying ending with volume turned up to hear #PinkyGoByeBye #."

Just before Christmas a Kelowna man lost his life while skiing at Big White while. Ski officials remind all skiers and snowboarders to obey the Alpine Code of Conduct at all times when enjoying the powder in them there hills.
