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.

Hi, I'm looking for folks interested in a weekend run up to Pagosa with a Saturday outing to ski Wolf Creek (80" on the ground there already). We would leave Friday noon-ish, rent a little house in Pagosa to stay Friday and Saturday nights, and go up to the pass to downhill ski on Saturday. And we certainly wouldn't miss the hot springs apres ski. I'm flexible as regards Sunday - ski, do a little snowshoe outing, or head for home. Let me know soon if you are interested. Sincerely, Bill (bill@priedhorsky.net).

Let's do the out/back mountain bike ride, along the Rio Grande gorge.   Start above the Taos Junction bridge, near Pilar, NM.  Bike ride is on a dirt road, along the rim of the gorge.  Some sand on the road.  Very nice views of the gorge and of the Sangres.  It is 8-9 miles to the Rio Grande Gorge bridge - return to cars for a total ride length of 16-18 miles.
Each rider will need a spare tube, patch kit, pump, water, and lunch.  (a fair number of goat heads on this ride).

SWNordic Fence Hang

Leader: 
Clay Moseley
Date: 
Sat, 2013-11-02

The annual "hanging of the fence" up at the cross country ski trails, this weekend (November 2-3 at 10am), and possibly another November 16-17.  Since the fire, we have a lot more area to cover and with a few more hands, the project goes exponentially faster.

We will have a couple of folks leading/directing the work from the end of the Ski Pajarito parking lot.  The plan is to meet at 10:00 AM, pick up some zip ties and go up that first little hill to where the fencing is to be hung.

The weather is nice so why not go to Cortez, CO to bicycle/hike.

I am thinking to leave Friday(10/25/13 ) after work, drive to Cortez stay there overnight at a hotel then ride Phil's World on Saturday.

On Sunday either go to Farmington or Durango and ride there some more, we can decide as a group what people are interested in. The rides are for advanced beginners or intermediate ride with easier sections and some technical parts.

For the hikers there are enough hikes to choose from high desert to forested trails and Mesa Verde.
