Sandia Peak in Albq.- Conditions and Crowds?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I will be skiing Sandia Peak Friday or Sat. for the first time in 35 years.  Looks like they have the best base since the last time I was there.  Can anyone tell me what to expect for conditions and crowds?  I know it will be warm and slushy.

It is Spring Break... Haven't been there myself, but my pals report that the snow is fabulous. plus it's supposed to snow on Friday, so it may not be all that slushy either.

With a 70" base Sandia will stay open through the 21st.  Report says 7" the last 24 hours according to their web site.  Looks like it will still be in good shape for the weekend.  Wonder why they closed today and Monday?  If Sandia isn't good Ski Santa Fe should be in slightly better shape.  Why not just drive the extra 11/2hrs to Taos???

Holy smolly!!!! Right ya are Mom about spring break.  Just checked the live cams from Angelfire and Taos...the crowds are the worst I ever seen!  Far more than President's weekend this year.  The carnage will be epic.....

Don't know your schedule but the grabbed 15" this past storm (Fri the 19th and Sat the 20th).  Remaining open thru 28th.  Days are warming significantly so conditions likely to be spring (slush) at bottom.

Weekdays, Taos, Angel Fire, and Sipapu should be OK.  End of season crowds are the norm!

For those looking to the northern part of the state, you'll find a snow and activity report summary at our blog: http://TalkAboutTaosTouris,.blogspot.com

They had 14" new overnight of very light snow.  I-40 was closed, keeping the crowds away. We took the tram up from town, and had an excellent day with zero lift lines on Saturday.  It is not often you get entire runs to yourself on a day like that.  It was down right lonely skiing until about noon.

They extended their season for another week, as did Sante Fe.
