Quick rant on tree wells/backcountry/people that don't know what they're talking about. So there's this girl from Wisconsin that comes out to Colorado for a week around Christmas every year. She posted day to day updates. First day she went to vail and rode groomers. Next day, I read her post. She says she hit up the backcountry at Breck. Hmm Breck didn't have any backcountry except hike to and im sure she didn't hike. Next day. She "fell into an 8ft tree well" at Breck. Really? Even with wind loading I doubt there is anyplace with 8ft of snow.
