Footage of a professional snowboarder riding out of an avalanche near Snow Valley Lodge in Kamchatka, Russia, also captured the amazing moment when a white hare scampered into and across the avalanche.

Last month, snowboarder David Carrier Porcheron, aka DCP, was being filmed as part of a movie organized by Helipro, a Russian tourist company for winter and summer activities.

Difficult to see at first, the footage of the white hare posted by Helipro on Vimeo a few days ago (and announced on its website Wednesday) zoomed in to get a closer look at the brave bunny, revealing “the best survival technique.”

We suggest you watch in mute, unless you think you’ll enjoy the accompanying song “Run Rabbit Run,” a catchy little ditty from 1939:

“What a ‘hare’-raising experience,” one commenter wrote under the Vimeo post.

“Pretty wild. Rabbit’s got skill,” another said.

“Awesome rabbit—I would not have made it,” yet another stated.

Someone asked whether the rabbit actually did make it all the way across, and Helipro gave the assurance that it did, saying, “He survived and has a beautiful life in Kamchatka!”
