An avalanche slid on Mount Sopris on Sunday morning, at approximately 10:50, catching one skier who was following the skin track up Thomas Lakes Bowl toward the east summit. The skier was on the edge of the slide path and was caught up to her waist by the slide but uninjured; the two others in her party were able to ski to her and dig her out. The runout from the avalanche took out the lower portion of the skin track. Another witness believed some of the debris to be eight feet deep.
