Jan. 26 (UPI) -- A man skiing in the Utah mountains had a camera mounted to his helmet when he fell off a 150-foot cliff and somehow managed to avoid being injured or worse.

Devin Stratton, 25, posted a video to Instagram showing his footage from the ill-fated skiing session this week on the back side of Mount Timpanogos.

The video shows him following in the tracks of another skier when he ends up falling off the cliff and plunging 150 feet.

Stratton lands on his back and turns the camera on himself to show he is OK.

"Turns out I am afraid of heights... Miraculously I didn't even have a bruise! I did break a lot of gear including my helmet. Thanks to Matt for helping me dig for nearly 5 hours I found my lost ski and skied down," Stratton wrote.
