Two people were pulled from an avalanche near the highest peak of a New Mexico ski resort Thursday, officials said — and a search is underway for others who are buried beneath the snow, according to reports.
KRQE News 13 reported the avalanche at Taos Ski Valley happened around noon, and it is believed there are others buried in the snow.
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Two skiers, both men, have been extracted and were still alive as of 1:40 p.m. Rescuers are continuing to search to see if anyone else was buried when the snow collapsed just before noon on Thursday (Jan. 17).https://t.co/HBtx3pTX6Epic.twitter.com/kBCnnqBVGW
