Why are tree wells dangerous in the snow?



  1. 0 Votes

    A rider or skier can fall into the deep tree well (area of loose snow around the trunk with air pockets) and become immobilized. If s/he does not have a partner near by to help, they could easily die of suffocation. The odds of surviving without a partner are extremely low. A study was conducted and 90% of people stuck in the tree well/deep snow could not get out by themselves.
