Avalanche in the Heart of the Pyrenees

Occurred on December 19, 2017 / Baqueira Beret / Val d'Aran, Catalonia, Spain Info from Licensor: "Avalanche that happened in the heart of the Pyrenees while we were filming for our next snowboard documentary film. Athleta is a 28-year-old local rider at Baqueira Beret who has participated in several Freeride World Qualifier events. What 'Alfons Garcia' didn't expect is that he was going to live an intense experience in what seemed like an idyllic backcountry day. And is that in one of its descents after jumping a rock from the top of the slope and make a turn the top plate of snow cracked causing an avalanche just above him. Luckily there was no damage and everything was documented by Victor De Ciria @tothetopfilms since the Aranese rider was faster than the avalanche, but it serves as an example to take into account the dangers that we expose ourselves whenever we go out to enjoy snowboarding off piste."
