Friends, Ms D1 and I are headed to New Mexico during the first week in April. Mostly it is to check out Santa Fe which we have both wanted to visit for a long time. But there is no way I could pass up hitting Taos (and maybe Santa Fe ski) while we are there since we have never been. In fact, this area is on our list for places to have a more permanent, if seasonal, ski track if retirement ever happens.
I see that Taos actually closes on April 6th, so we would be at the end of it. Honestly, I really do not much care what I find there so late in the season. In Maine, we are used to skiing on all kinds of flotsam this late in the season, at least in a thin year. Just wondering what we may find for conditions there so I can make a fair guess for gear. Thinking with mixed conditions, Kastle FX 84's and her Blizzard Black Pearls would be safe bets.
Any recommendations for lodging in the Taos (and even Santa Fe town) are would be most welcomed.
