As we have done in past years, we will rent a house in Leadville and use that town - the highest city in the U.S. - as a base for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and alpine skiing. The latter can be done at funky old Ski Cooper (3 free days with a Pajarito pass), or world class Copper Mountain, just 25 miles and 40 minutes away. We will drive up the afternoon/evening of Thursday February 14, spend 4 nights in Leadville, giving us 3 days for adventures, then return to Los Alamos on Monday the 18th, which is the President's Day holiday.

I so enjoyed Jean's last ski trip to Spruce Hole/Pinorealosa Peak area North of Chama that I thought that it would make an excellent deja vu moment for Groundhog day. Leave Los Alamos at 7 am, return about 5-6 pm.  Let me know if you'd like to come, at mraltherr1@gmail.com - and we'll arrange car pooling.

Let's return to Pagosa for a weekend of winter sports - snowshoe, cross country, and downhill at Wolf Creek, as your tastes may take you. In the evenings we can relax at the hot springs. Snow conditions are epochal. Wolf Creek has received 6 feet of snow in the last week, and is boasting a 60-inch base already, which bodes well for excellent conditions for the next few weeks.

Meet at PEEC at 9:15 for a 9:30 departure. Return around 3:00 p.m.  Bring a lunch. We will start at the Las Conchas trailhead and finish at the Eastfork trailhead, a total distance of about 5 miles with an anticipated travel time of 3 hours. The trail follows the meandering East Fork of the Jemez River for approximately two miles before climbing up to the top of the mesa. The trail then descends almost imperceptibly through quiet woodland for about 3 miles to the Eastfork trailhead.
