With the return of winter, I thought this might be a good time to remind everyone about tree well safety. I know we like to pretend we have “no friends on a powder day,” but actually these are the days when your skiing partner could save your life. Check out this intense video in which a skier gets completely entrapped in a tree well.
What’s amazing in this video is really how small that tree is, and how very hard it would have been to find the victim if he hadn’t been skiing with partners. For more information about tree wells go to www.treewelldeepsnowsafety.com.
