Tree Wells

I Like this report,
https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#245715

I've faltered while tree bashing on skis, found myself stuck head below feet,
ankles, knees, and hips stressed and bound by boots still in binding, attached to skis that
are crossed up in the snow.
Poles locked to wrists by leather stap, and behind my back.

Not a very good position.

Glad to see a report to remind all....

and yes, I realize wrist staps have flown afer the Dodo.

How did you get out of there? :200:
Here I thought there was nothing lower than a snakes belly in a rut in a ditch. I was wrong.

Primary; Never Panic (panic kills people)

Endevour to Persevere.

Count only on your own efforts to achieve success.

In short, I fought my pains, risked dislocations and/or injury
to self rescue. Calm and decisive.

It worked out.

Back when I first learn to ski (early 70s) that was heavily taught.... don't ski near trees (because you can be sucked down). Of course back then interior mountain snowfall amounts were considerably higher than today (Todd Mt known today as Sun Peaks, Silverstar & Big White. Were 3 main hills we skied at. Oh yes the ski run I very first learn on Tillicum)

Yes, snowmobilers who didn't know better would lose their machines (some cases worse). Have to try to ID the area and come back in spring/summer to retrieve their sled. Back then you needed to get someone with horse that was trained to pull stuff.
ATV were those 3 wheeled balloon tire things, if anyone actually had one.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.
