Staying alive snowboarding

I read this about a week ago. I clicked through and read most of it, although I don't really worry about tree wells...maybe I should but I don't.

This Saturday visibility was awful and I caught an edge, doing what would normally be a faceplant. However, the snow was so soft, it was a face dive. Riding alone, with my head seriously buried in very wet, deep, fresh powder.

Advice from the story - clear space around your face before moving - made my escape successful...don't want to be overly dramatic...but it helped. Never hurts to read.
