Dear Mountaineers,
Kathleen G. and I are discussing an outing over the long weekend in mid-January. We would rent a house in Salida, or on the road up to Monarch, and spend the days doing winter sports - downhill skiing/snowboarding at Monarch Ski Area (3 free days with a Pajarito pass), or snowshoeing in the high country. We would drive to Salida Thursday afternoon or evening and stay for 4 nights, traveling back home on Monday the 20th, which is a Lab holiday. Please write Bill at bill@priedhorsky.net if you would like to join in.

It looks like the San Juans North of Chama have been getting the lion's share of these recent storms. Let's go play! We'll plan to leave the Bank parking lot at 7:30. Drive to the Chama Visitor's Center Bldg. and put on our boots. We'll ski the track (or make one) to the Neff Mtn. yurt, have lunch, look to catch some turns nearby, and return the way we came. We should be back in Los Alamos around 6:00.
