^Just because your from the east does not spare you from death. There is above tree-line riding with very real avalanche danger in maine, new hampshire, vermont, and new york. Tree wells exist out east too. I was caught in one about 5 feet deep, right-side up thankfully. Let me tell you, it is not easy to climb out. Just because your not in the west does not mean mother nature spares you when it comes to all things snow related.
