A Montana man intentionally triggered an avalanche at Bridger Peak to prevent other skiers from accidentally triggering it, according to the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center.
Max Cohen, a native of Vermont, told NBC Montana Tuesday that he recognized the loose snow and performed a ski cut to prevent impending danger.
Cohen, who’s been in Bozeman for six years, recorded the incident on his GoPro and sent it to the Avalanche Center.
