Sverre Liliequist - back flip out of avalanche...
As it says in the title.
Sverre Liliequist backflips out of an avalanche in Zermatt (Swatch skier cup).
Competion apparently put on hold after this run ?
Fast forward to 55s... Deserves its own thread.

Wait- kinda of looked like he had no idea an avalanche was coming on behind him when he hit that backflip. Cool footage anyway.Move upside and let the man go through...

So sick That is the first avalanche segment clip I have ever watched (seems they are in too many films) I have ever been pumped watching.
Seriously what run could possibly compete with that

Cool, who needs beacons, avalungs, or ABS packs, just backflip out of an avalanche. Who knew avi avoidance was so simple.
I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...iscariot

StupifiedI need to go to Utah.
Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?
So after 15 years we have finally made it to Utah.....

impressive but i think "back flip out of an avalanche" is a little misleading.

spook is correct. he never was anywhere near the avalanche or any danger from it. was barely even sluff management. probably was impressive for the judges to see but hopefully didn't change his score any. and that was the weakest terrain i've ever seen for any big mountain comp. definitely not up to the level of the riders therepowdork.com - new and improved, with 20% more dork.

so if someone says "backflip out of an avalanche" i'm expecting pretty much miraculous. this wasn't that.
if they'd just said "backflip in front of an avalanche" i would have thought, "wow, ballsy." which is what i thought, right after i got over being disappointed that it wasn't out of an avalanche.
