A 22-year-old college student who got caught in an avalanche while skiing with friends in Montana, managed to document the ordeal on tape.

At one point the man hit a tree, the tree split and got swept down the hill in the avalanche as well.

The student eventually got buried in the snow, but his friends were able to dig him out in minutes.

He walked away with only a dislocated shoulder and bruising.
