Could have gone in the ski thread. But this too remarkable not to share here. I had to help a couple people out of tree wells but nothing like this.
Was the snowboarder even with the other two skiers? The way I saw it there were two (?) skiers and the trailing skier just happened to fall in the right place and notice the board sticking out upside down.Never skied powder that deep! He's lucky he was in the lead.
Tree well rescue in the Mt. Baker side country. I was skiing a zone with a partner when I passed by a snowboarder upsidedown and buried in a tree well. I only caught a glimpse of his board but it was enough to get my attention. The boarder was with a group of three other riders, all very experienced and carrying beacon, shovel, probe, and walkies.
The keel on my S2 is integrated into the hull. And the glass is thick as hell. For me to lose my Keel the boat would basically just have to be gonethat was always my nightmare in the trees...
Now it's losing a keel at 2am, asleep in my bunk
I must have a fear of drowning...
Baker has the highest snowfall on earth.That is some fuckin deep snow. That is one lucky boarder.
