Chris Bilbao of Portland, Oregon was skiing in the Monashee Mountains when he was swept away by the avalanche.

Bilbao and one of his friends were wearing chest-harness cameras to capture their ski adventure.

When Bilbao finally came to a stop, his friend was able to ski down and help him.

Bilbao says the experience was "like being in the ocean."

No one was injured in the avalanche.
