Folks asking me about the conditions in the Taos area, here's a video that pretty much sums it up. I'd say she did a pretty good job on her first round. The slope wasn't even 30 degrees...for a reason. Other reports of AS triggered avis are out and about. Take care out there.

Looks like this info could be extrapolated to the region after yesterday's avi incident in Nambe.

Really good courses this year! Thanks to those who supported BMG this year.
We hope that the information and techniques taught with the new AIARE Curriculum will serve our students well.
Ski & ride safe in the b/c!
