Zone or Region:
Santa Fe Area
Did you observe any avalanches? Yes
Size 2: Could bury, injure, or kill a person
The slide was around 20 feet wide and possible 300 feet long, down into the Santa Fe watershed. Bottom right of photo shows the run out.
Observed small slide off the eastern side of Tesuque peak, along with significant shedding on all eastern aspects of Deception and Lake peaks. Slide was 20 feet wide and possible 300 feet long on a 35+ degree slope, and potentially could have buried a person. Small D2. I skied out low angle western facing aspects, and would avoid eastern aspects.
