Une coulée au passage du skieur, qui déclenche ensuite une vraie plaque volumineuse. Un genou en vrac, mais surtout le sensation d'être passé très près d'une issue fatale :

" Let off a load of sluff, and carried on then suddenly the sluff became a full blown slide and I thought I could ski out of it, but within a nano second I had been taken out and worse of all by leg was pinned behind a tree with my head down the hill, and then the snow rapidly started to engulf me, I really thought this could be it. "
