After reading the post about RIP Ryan in the ice forum, I decided it was important to post this blog from the AAI about accidents and deaths in the final week of 2015. This belongs in every category on MP.

The one that really amazed me was about skiing and tree wells. Follow the link and watch the video. They were doing an avi course when a guy went head first into a tree well. They responded immediately, but even with multiple people there it took 5 minutes to get him out. He lived, so don't skip the video on fear of seeing a bad outcome. Really important.
