  1. ****ing tree wells – scary enough for a skier…might be able to detach from your skis MAYBE and squirm out of it…but snowboarders are pretty much locked into their boards, aren’t they? End up in a tree well upside down as a snowboarder and I imagine your chances are really bleak.

    God bless this young man. Condolences to his family and friends.
