The 47-second video starts with snow barrelling down a mountain behind a snowboarder, who very calmly (and impressively) manoeuvres out of the way of danger.
But then a tiny white hare apppears out of nowhere and makes a beeline towards the tidal wave of snow.
Obviously panicked and running for his life, the small hare hops, skips, and jumps over the boulders of snow hell-bent on burying him.
The video reaches an intense climax when, more than once, the hare appears to be swallowed by the snow. But just when you think all hope is lost, it resurfaces and surfs along the snowy foam.
After a terrifying few seconds, you see the hare finally crossing the avalanche and reaching safety.
The incident took place in Kamchatka, Russia, and HELIPRO confirmed that the hare survived.
