It's snow sport season. Yeah! Lets get together and refresh our avalache knowledge and do some transceiver exercises. It's promising to be a big snow year (dare I say it). The location is to be determined but probably in the TA/Chama area. I'm looking at locatons with enough snow to make it interesting, where we can play with our gear not far from the car, and then do something fun (it's all fun to me). If you have a suggestion please profer it. Los Alamos participants will rally at LANB at 7:15 departing nlt than 7:30.

A couple of us are heading up to Sipapu to ski for the day on Saturday - want to join us? Their snow making is well along, so that a good fraction of their hill has opened. Sipapu is of course included on most Pajarito passes. Departing Los Alamos 7:30-8:00 (TBD), departing Sipapu at 3:00 PM. LMK if you would like to join us in carpooling and skiing. Bill

This hike is in the valley, near Hernandez north of Espanola. The drive will be about 40 minutes each way. I estimate the length of the hike as 10-12 miles. Some scrambling and bushwhacking could be involved. I have never been to this location, so be prepared for some uncertainty along the way. Some interesting geological features (dikes) are expected.

Let's plan to leave town at 10:00 AM. Email or call for details. r.mccrady@comcast.net

Do you want to spend time outside on Black Friday instead of in stores? REI's #OptOutside campaign inspired us to provide this guided hike to help you enjoy the outdoors. Opt to spend the day outside, enjoying nature, rather than fighting the crowds or staring at a screen.

The location for this hike will be determined at a later date, once we know the snow situation and trail conditions. Plan on a moderately difficult hike that will take about 4 hours. The group will stop around noon to enjoy lunch on the trail.

Let's start the day with a little hike right here in town. I expect the hike to take about an hour and a half, and will take a route through a shallow canyon without an established trail.

We'll begin at 8:00 on Thansgiving day.

We have an extra bedroom in a house we rented in Pagosa, and are looking for someone who would like to join in on some Wolf Creek skiing. Decent base up there, and as they say,they have the best snow in Colorado. We will drive up to Pagosa Thursday afternoon/evening after turkey, ski Friday and Saturday at Wolf Creek, and drive home after Saturday's skiing. The cost for a bedroom for the two nights is about $150. The house can be seen at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/18785650. Let me know as soon as you can if you would like to join us.
