A Utah man was returning home from a day of skiing in Park City when an avalanche forced officials to close roads in Provo Canyon, requiring him take a lengthy detour to get around the closed roads. William Perry decided that instead of going out of his way to get home, he would leave his car and ski around the road closures.

Perry told Fox 13 that he had all the gear he needed and figured he could break in some of his new equipment.

“I’ve got an avalanche probe, beacon, a bivvy bag, shovel, an emergency blanket, extra water, headlamp. I got all the gear, so I figured why not?” Perry said.
