So you've all heard it before – tree wells are dangerous! But just how many of you actually understand how bad it could be if you or a friend was to get caught in one?
This is a video showing an actual rescue after someone fell into a tree well. The person was super lucky to have lots of people around to help and start digging him out.
Generally the person starts to panic and more snow begins to fall around his/her face which can suffocate you. The instructor told him to stop moving and remain calm (yes easier said than done) but its really important to remain calm.
If you choose to ski out of bounds then you need to be prepared and have the right tools.
Remember to ALWAYS ski or ride with a buddy or two!
