Anthony Robinson, of Denver, was skiing at the Arapahoe Basin Ski Area in Colorado on Saturday when the terrifying incident occurred.

He was skiing down an untouched trail when he the terrain began to change and a load of snow barreled down on him.

Robinson said he asked his guide, ‘Hey what if there was an avalanche?’ before he ventured down the trail, almost as if he sensed trouble was ahead.

As he moved forward down the hill, he could immediately sense that something wasn’t right.

‘You heard the ground moan. It didn’t take long for it to start moving faster than I could move,’ he told CBS News.

He tumbled down and was almost completely covered by snow, with his head poking up.

Other skiers came to his rescue and began to dig him out.

‘I just thought of my wife, my 18-month-old son, and God,’ the man said.

“I do believe that a lot of luck and something from above kind of said, “Not today,'”‘ he added.

The Colorado man only endured a few bumps and bruises and felt sore the next day but was otherwise not seriously injured.
