Oye's bag worked properly and the video shows him staying mostly above the snow as he is sucked down the slope.
"You could just see him sort of on the surface", Cote said.
During the terrifying fall, Mr Oye inflates his backpack, specifically created to keep skiers and snowboarders near the surface in an avalanche.
Oye received the backpack from his 82-year-old grandmother as a birthday gift on a recent visit home.

An Australian TV news crew tracked down Oye's family in Adelaide.
"It was definitely enough to get you killed", Haegeli said Thursday.

When a trigger on the shoulder strap is pulled, the backpack can inflate into an airbag (thanks to a high-speed fan). It also automatically deflates after 3 minutes to give wearers an air pocket in case they're buried.
"An airbag helps significantly but it's not a guarantee", he said.
Other safety equipment that North Shore Rescue advise include a transceiver (a transmitter and receiver), probe, and shovel.
"There's no substitute for good planning and informed decision making", he said.
