The second victim of last week’s avalanche at Taos Ski Valley has died, according to his family. 

Monday, 22-year-old Corey Borg of Vail, Colorado, passed away at UNM Hospital. 

In a statement, Borg’s family said he was an experienced and avid skier and loved the outdoors. 

Borg’s family also said he brought joy to many and will continue to bring joy to others through his life-saving gift of organ donation.

The avalanche also killed 26-year-old Matthew Zonghetti of Massachusettes. 

Investigators are still looking into what triggered the avalanche.
