Man Caught In Avalanche Shares Video
Bozeman, Montana (CNN) - A college student isn't just telling us how he survived an avalanche -- he's showing us.
This was footage captured by Jeremy Irons back in January when he was carried over a thousand feet and then buried by snow.
The 22-year-old Montana State University had been skiing with five of his friends in the Centennial Mountains when he was caught in the avalanche.
"I could just feel it building up behind me like more and more pressure on my back pushing me harder and harder into the tree. And then finally I heard the wood splintering and I just went through the tree. And the tree got taken down the hill with this avalanche also."
Irons' friends weren't caught in the the avalanche and managed to find him and dig him out in three minutes.
He was able to walk away from it all with only a dislocated shoulder and bruising.
