“Not how I planned to start my morning!’

That was the message from Tom Oye, a a snowboarder from Australia, who was caught in an avalanche recently, near Whistler.

The video, taken from Oye’s GoPro helmet cam and posted to Facebook, captures the moment the snow breaks loose, right through until the snow stops sliding.

Oye was okay, but had a simple message for riders, after the experience.

“Stay safe out there, kids!” He wrote.
