Skier Dies at Steamboat From Tree Well Entrapment

This sadly marks the first fatality at Steamboat Ski Resort this winter. Wikimedia photo.

Sobering news from Steamboat this weekend after a skier became trapped in a tree well and sadly passed away. Frank Maimone, a 53-year-old Pennsylvania native, was skiing alone and reportedly fell head-first into a tree well in the Shadows Glades area at the Colorado resort on Saturday. He was later found unresponsive around 2:30 pm.

Tree well danger is positively correlated with snowfall, and Steamboat recently received 38 inches of new snow last Thursday and Friday. As snowpack increases, so does the deficit of snow beneath trees, causing larger and larger tree wells. Ride with friends and  stay cautious, especially after large storms. Our condolences to Maimone's friends and family.

No tree required. I fell in the trees with 2+ feet of fresh pow at Breck this past weekend. Head was downhill and evertime I tried to breath, more snow fell into my mouth. Nose was packed. Was baresly able to extract myself. Even though I was not skiing alone, would the people skiing with me have been able to hike 50 feet uphill in deep snow in time to get me out? There are many different types of no-fall zones. Maybe so, but Mom always taught me, don’t ski alone.
