Avalanche Details

Ended up in a runout area that I shouldn’t have been in. Tried to cutout of the area safely but doubled back and got caught in my very wet heavy and deep sluff. Managed to stay in front of the debris, as it pushed me down the face like a bulldozer. I was not buried and came out on top of debris
