Skier records his descent through a mountain gully as snow flows and ‘bubbles’ around him like water in mesmerizing images

  • Miles Clark, 42, filmed incredible video in Nevada’s Ruby Mountains
  • The images show him slaloming through a narrow slide on one of the mountains
  • He flew on the famous ‘Terminal Cancer Couloir’ in the mountain range

This is the moment when a skier descended a narrow mountain channel where the snow ‘bubbled’ around him like water.

Miles Clark, 42, filmed the breathtaking video as he sped down the rocky slide in Nevada’s Ruby Mountains.

Statues show Clark, a professional freeskier and mountain guide, slaloming as the powder snow flows around him like a white tsunami.

He made the run on the famous Terminal Cancer Couloir in Nevada’s Ruby Mountains – one of North America’s 50 classic ski runs.

Miles, from Squaw Valley, California, said, “I love to stop and ski on this parachute as I drive across Nevada from Tahoe to Utah or vice versa.

Fortunately, I hiked up at 6:30 AM and was the first and only one in the parachute all early morning. ‘

The speed at which his skis hit the snow chops it up and makes it look like spray from a waterfall as he descends the mountain

Speaking about the video, he said, “The snow is falling and shuffling and bubbling with me as I ski down, especially on the first field.

“It’s one of the most aesthetically pleasing slides in North America with high, vertical walls that are only eight feet apart and seem to last forever.”

The Ruby Mountains are Nevada’s wettest mountain range, and good snow can almost always be found above 8,000 feet during the winter months.
