WATCH: Skier Base Jumps off cliff then realized he avoided an AVALANCHE

These guys are crazy going from skiing to base-jumping and then to see they narrowly escaped an avalanche just adds to their adrenaline. All you can do is yell like Matthias Giraud did after he noticed he had triggered an avalanche when he was safely flying away. 

Matthias was just carving up the mountain and then base jumping to then realize he escaped death.  All seemed normal until he looked back to see that he just avoided a huge avalanche. Wow! Seeing the snow pouring off the edge like a waterfall shows the power of what the two skiers escaped. No words can describe that feeling. I am with Matthias on just letting out a yell and hugging my friend at the end. Amazing!
