|509-pow||yes true. it can happen to anyone. the scary thing is that i was there alone that day and was doing tree runs most of the time. i did get stuck about waist deep in one spot buy i stay as far from the tree as i can get.|

'There was a youtube vid floating around on here that showed a bunch of ski patrolers out for training when an unexpected tree well incident happened. Guy ended up face first in a well with barely his skis showing above the well..... even the trained pros struggled, panicked a little, and were freaked out about the incident. The rescue wasn't the smoothest either.. scary scary... but those trees are sooooo inviting.
I think we ( I ) need to have some knowledge on what trees to look out for, and even then....... may God be with you!

Why there isn't more awareness RE: tree well dangers blows me away. I know there's the site that explains all about them and the hazards, but even that site is vague on what to do should you end up in that unfortunate situation is beyond me ...
Even meadows doesn't make much mention of the tree well danger.... A lot of tree riding going on there..
