As ski areas across Colorado gear up for National Safety Awareness Week, which started Saturday and runs through Friday, Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. has a special interest in promoting tree well safety and is finding new ways to educate skiers. An Arapahoe Basin Ski and Snowboard Area instructor, Grace Lynn McNeil, was found dead in a tree well Jan. 6 at the bottom of Chute 3 at Steamboat Ski Area. In January 2008, two other skiers died in the natural hazards.
