Freestyle Skier Performs Back Flip While Outrunning an Avalanche

Want to see an amazing daredevil feat? Watch and see how a skier out skies an avalanche...

During the Swatch Skiers Cup, freestyle skier, Sverre Liliequist, stole the show by performing a back flip and out running an avalanche that he triggered during his run.

The avalanche starts at the 54 second mark and the slow motion back flip at around 01:50. The consensus is that the back flip was planned before the run, but hats off to Sverre for keeping his cool and crossing the finish line!
