Snow has plagued the UK and the US this week, causing a huge amount of travel chaos and flight cancellations.

The weather can be especially dangerous when it becomes snow in freezing conditions, as it can be very unpredictable.

One person found this out the hard way when they were driving through a snowy forest on a snowmobile.

The close shave was even caught on camera.

Viral video: A snowmobile driver narrowly avoids a dangerous fall

Suddenly the entire mountain side of snow collapses

The viral video shows the person driving through the snowy terrain as they speed through the trees.

They then get to the edge of a cliff edge, where the snowy mountains can be seen all around.

As they slow down, suddenly the entire mountain side of snow collapses and falls hundreds of metres below.

Thankfully, just the left ski of the vehicle is caught up in it, and the rest of it manages to stay on solid ground.

The Imgur video has had over 266,000 views, with many explaining it was actually the drivers own fault.

One remarked: “See where the trees stop? There’s nothing under there but snow. That’s a lesson you only need to learn once!”

Another user wanted to see the rest of the video.

They asked: “How’s he not slipping off? Cuts too soon.”

It isn’t the only nerve-wracking video in the snow, as one man decided to play with a wild bear.

The man can be seen throwing snow at the bear, who is playfully catching it.

Whilst normally a dangerous animal, the bear is seen to be enjoying it as it sits down with the man.

It even jumps in the air as the snow is thrown at him.
