The tour starts from the west end of the ski area parking lot, follows the nordic tracks past Canada Bonito, and descends into the Valle de los Posos on Pipeline Road.  Then we travel West through the Valle de Los Posos and continue to the Jemez Hot Springs, then finally ski out to La Cueva.

This is a roughly 25-mile-long trip.  It requires an intermediate level of cross-country ski touring experience, and includes a DIFFICULT or MODERATE (depending on snow cover) one-mile-long descent (with 4 or more downed trees) on a narrow jeep road.

We will start early as a single group, probably around 7 AM. Please email Scott if interested.  The trip is conditional upon snow conditions, and number of skiers.
