Snowmobiler Narrowly Avoids Death (VIDEO)

YouTuber 'skirulefool' has faced death square in the face - and he's got the video footage to prove it.

As you'll see from the video above, he drives his snowmobile up to the top of a hill on the Wyoming-Idaho border, stopping just in time as a huge chunk of snow drops away underneath him.

It's like something out of a disaster movie. A pretty low-budget diaster movie, sure, but you'll take our point.

The astonishing clip was recorded on a pair of video goggles, chronicling skirulefool and his slightly inept ski-doo driving skills forever more.

The sad news is, as soon as he escaped from near death, he managed to hit a tree on his way down. The footage of that incident (see below) was enough to prompt one YouTube commenter to ask a pretty important question: "Have you ever considered knitting?"

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a deep burn.
