Taos Ski Valley, NM Names Trails To Honor Those Lost In Avalanche

In January of 2019, an inbounds avalanche on Kachina Peak took the lives of two men who were skiing the K3 chute. Now, Taos Ski Valley has named two trails in remembrance of the skiers that died that during that incident.

The now named Z-Chute is named for 26-year-old Matthew Zonghetti, the first of the two men to have died in the avalanche. The now named She Gone run is named for Corey Borg-Massanari, who died several days later due to injuries from that avalanche. Both trails are located off the Kachina Peak lift and had no name until now.

“We’re grateful to Matt and Corey’s families for working with us to honor their memories,” said David Norden, CEO of Taos Ski Valley. “By naming these trails, we can ensure that they are remembered for years to come and that our community of skiers, staff, and residents continues to pay their respects.”
