Radu was wearing a GoPro3+ camera which captured the moment the snow crust began to break and ripple all around him, eventually sweeping him up in the deluge of white powder.

Radu lived to post the video to YouTube.

    I was asking a question, not passing judgment on the magnitude of the avalanche. Then I did research and answered my question. Sorry to have caused you grief.

    I can remember when I was ice skating and the ice started cracking beneath me–it makes a lot of noise and you have a few seconds to get to shore. Fortunately the pond was only about 2 to 3 feet deep, and I didn’t fall through, but it’s alarming.
