Wet slides are not to be taken that lightly. They are heavy, wet, destructive slides and there are plenty of burials from them. They can also be very bone crushing rides.
I do agree that the terrain around Tuck's help keep the burial chances low. Wide open slopes that let the slide fan out keep burials to a minimum. Good things would not happen if you were in front of that when it let loose.
Tuck's is quite the junk show, and it is also real alpine terrain in the East. It certainly doesn't get the respect it deserves from most who visit it in the spring.
