Tree Well & Deep Snow Immersion Prevention Video

Avalanches should not be the only concern while riding on a powder day; tree wells and deep snow immersion are a risk for novice to expert riders, and skiers and snowboarders alike. Accounting for 20% of all fatalities at ski areas, it is a situation we must all be aware of while enjoying the sport we love during the winter months. Mt Baker Mountain Operations Managers Gwyn Howat and Pro Patrol Veteran Mike Trowbridge team up with a few other PNW organizations to put together this educational website to help prevent accidents of this nature in the upcoming season.
