I've seen skiers send that berm from a cliff across the way and knew there was a lot of risk with trees but thought I had a good mental picture from that perspective and the person with me said to hit it straight on and lesson learned. I'll always ride over a blind landing that has trees once from now on before I hit it from the top.. the x rays and surgery were a pretty painful experience. Still not fully recovered yet.. but I'm getting there! I'm pretty sure I've got tail grabs back from doing physical therapy.
