STORY: The video shows the skier finding the snowboarder buried head-first next to a tree. He then proceeds to dig the snow out with his hands until he's able to see the snowboarder's face. Once he gets the confirmation the man buried under the snow is alright, he gets a shovel and continues to dig out the snow.
The skier, Francis Zuber, posted the video on social media as a warning. "Tree wells are real (....) I'm thankful I knew just enough to scrape by and perform a successful rescue," he wrote.
