Nick Polidoro was demo’ing a Float airbag while heli-boarding in March 2016 in Haines, AK. He was caught in an avalanche on Directors North, getting carried over two cliffs—and down 1,000 vertical feet.
He ended up with his face and toes just above the surface.
“Before I pulled the trigger, I had no control whatsoever. Once I pulled it, the whole situation changed: instead of pitch black, I could see white,” Nick recalled.
