You can't really say that wasn't a 'legit' tree well because it doesn't 'look' big. That's the problem with tree wells, you can't really see them. You can only have the knowledge to understand how they work, and where they might be so you can avoid them

This is a pic right after digging my buddy out. He went in head first, his board was level with the snow and luckily I saw him go in.

Doesn't look all that spectacular either!
