Skier is publicly talking about how she barely escaped death. An avalanche buried her and three others in several feet of snow. She was buried for 15 minutes barely able to move or breathe until fellow skiers rushed to dig her out. Minutes later the Washington Ski Patrol arrived. Before she goes skiing again, she says she is going to buy an avalanche beacon and plans on taking avalanche safety courses.
