Xavier Delerue’s monster avalanche footage

Xavier Delerue is a hell of a lucky guy. While filming for Standard’s Aesthetica last march in the Alps, he got caught in one of the most impressive avalanches ever recorded on film. The whole spine he was riding on, broke down and smashed him over a two kilometer ride! This happened a few days after The Xtreme de Verbier where Xavier was crowned World Freeride champion. Xavier, an overtalented and experienced freerider, can be grateful he was riding with an ABS system that allowed him somehow not to be crushed by the pressure of the snow and keep him on top of the avalanche.
This comes as a wake up call before the season really gets going. The first big snowfalls are expected this week-end in the Alps. Don’t get overwhelmed people! Safety first.
