Are you ready to get puked on???!!! Give me a "Hell Yes!"


THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN ALBUQUERQUE HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM THIS EVENING TO 5 PM MST WEDNESDAY. THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT. SNOW WILL BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD LATER TONIGHT AND PEAK OUT ACROSS THE NORTH CENTRAL MOUNTAINS TUESDAY INTO TUESDAY NIGHT. WRAP AROUND PRECIPITATION WILL LINGER DURING THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY AS THE STORM EJECTS OFF TO THE EAST. STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS WILL RANGE BETWEEN 10 INCHES TO AROUND 2 FEET.

I was up at Taos yesterday and they've been makng lots of snow. What was open was decent - even if it was just cruising.




More importantly, it's amazing how much of the steeps have been ski packed - lots of hard work and dedication. With this storm and more to follow on Friday and Saurday we should be off and running!

Hope that you didn't jinx it with this report of "upcoming conditions":

Me too, but my gut tells me this is the real deal.

Sure hope so. so far it's been mostly rain. But since we are departing for points north at the end of the week, it is a near guarantee of major dumps to come here. just thank me while you are enjoying it!

HELL YES!!!

Taos wasn't too bad yesterday (Sunday), a bit windy tho. It was better on Friday. Just perfect for demoing new groomer skis. Unfortunately, the skis were sooo good I had to buy them.

14" of San Juan slop here (20 miles from NM @ 7500 ft) from the southern flow. Excellent and much needed base. Typically it's colder and a little dryer at Purg and powder rules will apply today!

We got dumped on last night and it is still coming down. 10% of Ski Santa Fe now open. It is going to take a lot more to make it really good, but this is a start. I got my Christmas wish.

I just got off the phone with a friend who hiked up Pajarito and skied down in 2 feet of fresh. It looks like the wrap-around from this system is doing quite a number up there. He said it was snowing like crazy.

Hubby's work closed early this morning, so we drove up to Taos.

12" of fresh, and it was falling all day. Too bad they didn't open any more runs. :

Made it up to Wolf Creek on Tuesday the 19th, 12-15 of fresh, bringing the base to 65"-68", everyhting was open. It ws a warm storm, so the snow was not low moisture powder, but it was POWDER. Wolf Creek is my training area until Taos gets its base. Many of the single black off-trail runs have little short sections of 45% to 48% of steepness, perfect preparation for Taos's more prlonged steeps.

Quick question, do they have skiing in Philmont (Cimarron, NM?)
Also known as Philmont Scout Ranch.

No skiing at Cimarron - but it's only about 1/2 hour to Angelfire.
