Green doors and close shaves with barbed wire

I am, for obvious reasons, reading Behind the Green Door (1940) by Mildred A. Wirt, a prolific author with many pseudonyms and best known now as the main ghostwriter behind the Nancy Drew stories.

In the Desert Portal Death Cult story I posted about on Saturday, James recounts how, running away from said cult and its sinister “green portal,” he nearly clotheslined himself on a strand of barbed wire but miraculously escaped injury.

In Behind the Green Door, our plucky heroine, girl reporter Penny Parker, is staying at a ski resort and trying to sleuth out what is going on behind the mysterious Green Door at one of the other hotels there. She takes a wrong turn on the ski slopes and nearly clotheslines herself on a strand of barbed wire, but manages to jump over it just in time, escaping injury.
