Skiingman! Mom! Wake-up guys!....Taos received 7 inches in 24 hours! Finally New Mexico gets its El Nino pattern started. Hope to see more storms hit the area soon. You guys deserve it after last year.

Don't even mention last year.....: : : It was pretty dismal. Ski Santa Fe built a new lift and was not even able to use it. I think I will go out and offer the Gods a toke n as a sign of my appreciation.

Hoping to make our annual trip to New Mexico this year In March! We skipped last year because of conditions were dismal. Nothing like those views from the top of Gay Way/ Cornice on a clear day!

don't forget the corn pollen.

snow in town? the watershed? or only in the mountains? any in the Jemez?

Here in Boulder, we're looking at around 4" where I live, my local mountain is reporting a storm total of 10" with very low temps - not much snow, but after all the melting last week, I'll take whatever we get.

It's just showery. Taos'll be lucky to pick up a foot from this storm. Everywhere else is only looking at a couple of inches. It's nice to see some white stuff, but we have a LONG way to go before we start seeing good skiing in these parts.

It is still snowing lightly but I'm told another wave is coming. It's even been snowing in town all night and day. Wolf Creek has 30 inches in the last few days. Taos got about a foot, but they still only have three runs open. Ski Santa Fe is still not open. Anyhow, we are grateful to the snow gods for sure. MORE MORE MORE!

Massachusetts Update: Washed the car in a tshirt today. I had the windows out while I cleaned and stained them and the heat was set on 60.......and it didn't turn on.

Not one flake of snow have I seen this year so far.: The grass is still green, and I still have a petunia that has a new bloom on it. DIE! DIE!! DIE, SUMMER!!

And ya'll wonder why we're testy.:

I need to decide to either a) skip school friday and go to Taos for this three day clinic they are emailing me about or b) skip school tomorrow and go to Wolf Creek.

argghhhhh.

Taos is reporting three open runs, two beginner and one intermediate. WC has 95% of the mountain open and is reporting a 50" base. with 34" of storm total as of this morning. What was the question again? Unless of course you are seriously looking for employment at Taos which is what i understand the clinic is about. BTW, WC is only four hours drive from ABQ. You can stay in school and go up for the weekend. problem solved. (spoken like a mom, right?)

Yeah I did both last week, not really looking forward to more white ribbon at Taos but this clinic thing has piqued my curiosity.

I would like to get into part time instructing at some point, but I'll have to call and see if they would even be interested wrt my schedule limitations.

I just got the snows back on so I'm ready to hit the road.

Interesting drive home tonight in SF - the roads and sidewalks in town are fall-on-your-ass slick. I'm planning on Wolf Creek tomorrow (Thursday) - hope the roads are okay in the early morning.

The MrKtell site says I have about 16" on my deck since 2:00 p.m. A litttle more than the 2" the NWS predicted... Taos should have some more terain open for the weekend. It's still comming down.

Arrrrrrghhhh! My house must be in some bizzare micro-climate. A mile or to away there is half that much snow. The ski areas got diddly-squat last night. It sure was fun shoveling....
post #15 of 24
I went with Mom's advice after all and I'm going to wait till the weekend to head up to WC.

MisterK, I want to live where you live. Yay for shoveling!

My son is going to the UNM branch in Taos for his first two years of college and working at Taos as a ski instructor. I thought it to be a wise decision, having gone to the University of Utah just to ski myself. Hmmm....maybe that's why it took me 8 years to get a B.A.

We are headed up to WC (what an unfortunate acronym!) this weekend also. Probably just Sunday because those dreadful weekend chores get in the way. I hear a rumor they may get some more snow on Saturday!

Knute, what an understanding dad you are!
post #18 of 24
We'll be at WC Saturday. Almost hate to do it, because my Taos pass is still waiting to be used, but ya gotta go with the snow...

I am not only an understanding dad, but I also have not forgotten my misspent youth as some folks seem to do as they get older. ANYTHING that gets them away from Grand Theft Auto and other wastes of time in front of a screen and outdoors is my idea of good parenting.

So, Skiingman, did you go?
post #21 of 24
Any word on Angel Fire opening? So out of the loop...
post #22 of 24
Yeah, did anybody go to Wolf Creek and how was it?

There is not a cloud in the sky in Santa Fe as I write this. There is snow on the ground, but not much. Little dusting yesterday morning was all we got of the supposed 'second storm'.

Oh well.
post #23 of 24
I got up there for one day, and it was very nice.

Albuquerque is bluebird as well at the moment. I'm not going to have another opportunity to ski here until after the "break" (read: service to the retail gods in NY) so I hope you all find lots of frozen moisture in the meantime.

Went on Sunday. All terrain open. still able to make fresh tracks in the glades off Horseshoe.
