Very thin snowpack, lots of exposure and obstacles. History

A steep, gnarly chute and an open pow field. Don't let your fears hold you back.

Overview

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

Class 3 avalanche terrain. www.TaosAvalancheCenter.org andNNMAE.org are good sites to find and share info.

Description [Suggest Changes]

Accessing this line from the top requires rappelling down a large cliff. Otherwise, the line can be climbed when avalanche potential is low. From the bottom of the large cliff band at the top, the chute is narrow and steep; it gradually widens and levels onto an open pow field.

History & Background [Suggest Changes]

Skiing on Kachina's east side is a cherished treasure. Avalanches occur often here, but when it's safe to ride, this is some of the best terrain around.
