Please join us for x-country ski to the Brazos Cliffs overlook. This is one of my favorite skis. The snow conditions should be wonderful. I am going by memory, so some of the details may be a little off. This is ~ 8 mile round-trip, out and back ski with ~600 ft elevation gain. Most of the climbing is in the last mile. The starting point is at a high point on highway 64, between Tierra Amarilla and Tres Piedras. We will ski north to a beautiful overlook of the Brazos Cliffs and Brazos drainage. We will meet up at Sullivan Field in Los Alamos at 7:00 AM.

In a repeat of a classic outing, let's head north over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend downhill/ crosscountry/ snowshoe around Monarch Pass. Although this might not be the greatest snow season in New Mexico, Monarch should offer something, and reports 22" on the ground as of Dec. 10 – more than one will find in New Mexico. We will head for Salida to establish a base in a comfortable house, and spend our days in winter sports in the Monarch Pass area.

Saturday January 7 - let's do an X-C ski tour at Cumbres Pass.  We will ski 8 miles roundtrip from Cumbres Pass to the Flat Mountain yurt and back.  There is 1100 ft of elevation gain one way.

This is a kick/glide tour with some low angle (<25 degree slope) telemark turns possible.  Because it is not on a groomed track, metal edged cross country touring skis are required.  (Track skis and AT gear do not work well in these off-track, rolling hills terrain).

Ski Santa Fe is reporting 12" of new snow from 12/27 to 12/29. This will be an out and back x-country ski/snow shoe along the road from Aspen Vista. This road climbs gradually from an elevation of 10,000 feet to the Electronic Site near the top of the ski area at 12,000 feet. Hopefully there will be adequate snow coverage in the lower section for the skiers. We will likely not climb all the way to the top where the antennas are located.
