Woman buried/rescued from Avalanche near A Basin

Just east of Arapahoe Basin (in the Front Range Zone), a skier Sarah Thompson of Boulder was caught in an avalanche just before noon. The cornice she was standing on broke under her, and then triggered an avalanche, slid about 1,000 feet and was buried her with just a hand above the snow surface. She rescued and evacuated for medical care. See thread at
