TAOS, NM – Sept. 11, 2020 – Two trails at Taos Ski Valley’s Kachina Bowl will honor Matthew Zonghetti and Corey Borg-Massanari, both of whom died tragically in an avalanche in 2019. The trails will be known as Z-chute and She Gone. The Zonghetti and Borg-Massanari families selected the names.
“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.”
