Unfortunately, the Taos Avalanche Center will be shutting down for the season. Road access has been closed to the main trailhead in the area. Out of respect to the Village of Taos Ski Valley and their wishes during this time we have decided to shut down, as we don't have access to make observations to produce forecasts. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or call me at 781-572-5631. Stay safe, take care of yourself and others.

Any other comments about the observation or links to outside pages that have more info on the observation:
Spotted slab of drifted snow near surface, dug pit above intended objective, spoted and tested 2 weak layers in first meter of snowpack, and surface slab failed on CT21 @ 25 cm, bailed and skied out through Ski Santa Fe. Southerly aspects appeared to have safer options.
