Man caught up in avalanche while skiing in Norway


This is the shocking moment a man was caught up in an avalanche while skiing in Norway.

Cato Laegreid was suddenly hit by a released pack of snow which gathered into the gully he was entering in Roldal on March 14.

Luckily Cato had been preparing for many years and started straight-lining his skis as soon as it caught him from behind.

He said: ‘It caught up with me and it felt like a huge truck came from behind and kicked me in my back.’
