Leeper wrote about his encounter on Instagram. He attempted to dig his hands deeper into the snow to avoid slipping because he was concerned about the rocky terrain. Snow covered his shoulders, so his attempt to grab his airbag was likewise unsuccessful.

My skis launched me into the wall as the rock in the middle was about to hit, but I was able to get my hands up and catch myself before hitting my face, likely popping my shoulder out at that point. “Once I hit the first rock, I knew I had to keep my feet under me because the rock in the middle was about to hit. Knowing I had another rock band to clear, I made a strong effort to keep my feet on the ground. Fortunately, I managed to bounce over the last patch of rocks and into the snow, he wrote.

Three individuals assisted in getting him to the medical room after he asked another skier for assistance. He had some minor wounds. He also mentioned that there was a moderate avalanche forecast, sunny skies, and high 20s temps at the higher elevation.

He was safe, and internet users breathed a sigh of relief. Happy you’re still with us, a user said. Another commenter wished Owen a speedy recovery. Thank you for outlining the sport’s actual risks! “1) Glad you are (basically) okay,” wrote a third user. 2) Congratulations for posting this. Through situations like this, we can always learn something. 3. You are incredibly tough.
