Warning: NSFW (explicit language)

An East Vail skier witnessed an avalanche and saw that his brother and another man were trapped.

All captured on his GoPro camera, the man raced down the backcountry slopes over the tree line and successfully rescued them.

Viewers can see everything unfold from a first-person perspective—which is both cool and terrifying.

Hat-tip to Reddit user "shinybutt" for the find.
