Another Tree Well Death at JHMR--Resort Employee Killed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Sad news out of Jackson Hole yesterday; 25 year old Oregon native Kelsey Hewitt died in a tree well. She was working at Jackson Hole Sports and appears to have gotten stuck in a tree well and suffocated.

Awful.  I have been buried in an avalanche but I have nightmares about falling head first into a tree well...

I was looking at the tree wells here yesterday and wondering if things were getting dangerous. We've had a lot of soft, fluffy snow really quickly with no time to consolidate. Things aren't really deep compared to this date other years, but it's a different consistency than last year.

Very sad and so young. :(
