Let's hike the Ancho Canyon (aka Ancho Springs) Trail to Blue Dot Trail.  This is a 10 mile hike, starting on State Route 4, 4 miles south of White Rock.  The hike follows a dirt road on the mesa for ~1.5 miles, then drops 2 miles into White Rock Canyon to Ancho Rapid.  The route follows the river trail for 4-5 miles north, passing the Red Dot Trail onto the Blue Dot Trail.  Then the final 1 mile is uphill out of the canyon to the Overlook Park in White Rock.

Heidi Rogers is opening her home in the Brazos to be a base for a weekend of snowsports at Cumbres Pass and vicinity.   As of January 10th (could put in a later date, because it will snow all week!), there is beginner and intermediate X-C skiing or snowshoeing at the Edward Sargent's Wildlife Area, just north of the village of Chama.  And there are lots of options for beginner/intermediate/expert X-C and snowshoe tours at Cumbres and La Manga Passes.

Three of us are planning a weekend trip to Wolf Creek for skiing, and we'd like to invite anyone else who might be interested. I would leave early Saturday AM, so as to arrive at the ski area not too late, ski all date, overnight at a motel in Pagosa with perhaps some hot tubbing, ski again at Wolf Creek on Sunday and drive home. Let me know if you would like to join us. Bill

This is a major modification of a trip planned to go to the vicinity of the Brazos Overlook due to a sustained road closure on NM Hwy 64. Apparently, NM Hwy. 64 between Tierra Amarilla and Tres Piedras has been closed for some time. It looked like it closed in late December and has not yet reopened. I checked today and the road is still closed, and with the prospect of additional snow this weekend I think the chance of it re-opening before Sunday are slim to none.

Hi All,

 

Let's ski up the Grouse Creek drainage, at Cumbres Pass.  This is an exploratory trip, to find a good way to get up to the Jarosa Peak plateau above the Grouse Creek Yurt.  (The exploration is to set up the next trip, a Grouse Creek/Red Lake Road loop ski).

Although the snow is still a little sparse around Los Alamos, southern Colorado is doing just fine. I propose to head north to take advantage of that snow (54” base at Monarch as of December 18). As we have done in past years, we will head for Salida to establish a base in a comfortable house or cabin, and spend our days in winter sports in the Monarch Pass area. Any of the 3 top Pajarito season passes offer three free days at Monarch, and otherwise tickets are relatively inexpensive online.

I just found out that the Laboratory, in its wisdom, is requiring us to take an additional vacation day during the break and delaying our post holiday return until Tuesday January 3rd. So, this may be wishful thinking but lets spend the day doing something a lot more fun than work anyway. Snow permitting, I plan on skiing the Los Gregos trail complex from the NM 4 parking area at MM 35 for a couple of hours. This is a moderate BC ski requiring intermediate skiing skills. Scaled skis, or superior waxing skills are required; and if you can wax for the Jemez - you got something to teach me.
