As I've said before, tell your friends, family, and NM contacts about this place. These people want some traffic. Lets load up their server with postys galore.

Taos Ski Valley enjoyed the beauty of 50" of fresh dry powder last week. Open 100% top to bottom. Did you say hike the ridge, run some chutes, rip some 8's? Give yourself that break you want and deserve. Visit Censored for a week.

Angel Fire and Sipapu didn't get as much. Only 5 to 10". Amazing how one can be 15 miles away and get 10 to 20 times as much snow!

If anyone reading this has any documentation on the impact of allowing or not allowing snow boards on an area, please let me know. Some locals in the Taos area are trying to convince the Taos folk that we need the boards. I think the economic impact is severe.

Embarassed

Think I also missed the point of hot and spicy. Any body who likes spicy foods might want to add NM to their itinerary. NM's mexican food is made with green or red chili peppers. Not anything like Texas chili (which is good too). In fact, the state question is...

Red or Green? What kind of chili do you want with your enchiladas, huevos, tortillas, etc.? Red is usually hotter. Green usually has some of the chili chunks. Pretty hot and spicy NM Ski Talk!

I understand Taos Ski Valley had 45 inches of new snow from the storm, with a 68-79 inch settled snow base. Eighty-two of 102 trails are open including steeps and the Ridge, from St. Bernard to Twin Trees.

Wow... is this normal?! Shocked

I do not have the yearly stats for the varied point of the year. The average annual total snow for Taos is about 320 inches! At some point during the season, we usually have 100" settled.

Taos closes in early to mid April regardless of snow. They have closed with about the same snow amount as we have at this time. They have closed with 4 feet of new snow the week of closing. They have closed with 2 or 3 feet of fresh snow the week following closing.

Much of our market comes from Texas. By April, the golf clubs are out and the skis are put up for the year.

As the ski season winds towards it's end, Most local areas closed today March 28. Angel Fire ended their season with a week long snowboard championship event. Around 1000 participants were expected.

Some areas had lift tickets for as low as $19 during the last couple weeks. Taos closes April 11 and offers $28 lift tickets til close.

With the 60-70 degree days we've recently experienced, we'd better have clouds and maybe snow or 4/11 might be optimistic! Oh well, as the snow melts, just means the white water rafting in the Rio Grande is ramping up for the season. Hiking and biking trails will some be abuz with people.

Last weekend's storm brought another 20 inches of snow to Taos. Taos is the only ski area that remains open in NM. Closing is April 11, 2004.

Won't brag about the driness of this snow. It is about 10% moisture compared to our nromal 5-6%. But that is good! The trees, the rivers, the rafters, the farmers, the fisherman, and the lakes need it!

What is the best place in NM for some good backcountry skiing?
