Snowboarder with a GoPro Caught in an Avalanche (Video)

A California snowboarder who filmed himself narrowly escaping an avalanche could be facing charges from the owners of the resort he was staying at.

Christian Michael Mares, 29, was out snowboarding at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort near Lake Tahoe on Friday last week when an off-piste jump triggered an avalanche which he filmed on a helmet camera.

However, the owners of Sugar Bowl said that they are seeking charges against Mares, claiming he was riding in an off-limits area and put lives at risk with his actions.

Warning: Mares understandably says a few choice words in the middle of the avalanche
