This ski tour is being postponed until Saturday, February 1st while we wait for more snow in the Jemez.  If there is no snow by that date, let's consider doing the trip as a hike instead.  This will give us a chance to see this new area without delaying other ski trips that are scheduled later in February.

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.
