(KSL News) -- A Utah snowboarder took on the forces of nature today, and won.

Knut Carter shot video of his buddy, Chris Coulter, at Guardsman's Pass, coming down the hill on his snowboard. The video shows that he triggers an avalanche, and, not knowing that, still does a 360.

Then the avalanche hits him hard. He's buried and rolling down the hill. He crashes through a stand of trees. But when it's all over, Chris is still hanging 10 on his snowboard.
