Johno Verity – who bears more than a passing resemblance to a young Devun Walsh – was caught up in a large avalanche back in 2008 whilst filming. He recorded everything of his experience. The result is about as close to the real thing as you’ll want to get.
As snow closes in around the lens things get a little claustrophobic. Due to the way the avalanche formed he ended up being spat out after being covered originally and was found quickly, only a little a shaken.
