GUNNISON, Colo. (CBS4) – Incredible video shows the moment an avalanche buried a snowmobiler near Gunnison.

Cody Strong posted the video on YouTube. It appears to be from his helmet and shows him riding around through the trees. Then — in an instant — a wall of snow topples over him.

Strong says the avalanche carried him 100 feet from his snowmobile. He says the experience convinced him to take avalanche safety classes.
