Some people seem to welcome situations we would never, ever put ourselves in. Like these two dudes casually watching an avalanche, exerting a certain level of chill even as a tide of snow rushes towards them.

It’s a sight to see, layers and layers of powder building up and blocking the road they’re on. According to a comment left by Christian Mermoud (the guy who uploaded the video), he and his friend just happened to be there at the right time, taking the chance to catch mother nature in all of its glory and share it with the rest of the world. Thanks for not running away/dying?
