New Mexico and UT desert peaks conditions

Postby mitrik » Sun Mar 17, 2013 6:47 pm

Looking to ski Wheeler Peak area in the beginning of April.

What are the current snow conditions? How have New Mexico peaks fared this winter?

I'm also looking for partners who may want to bag the highest peak in NM.



Also may want to ski in the La Sal Range near Moab the same week.

How is it looking in the La Sals?

Have you looked at the Taos Ski Valley website?

It's been pretty dang hot here. Ski Santa Fe is reporting a 50 inch base, TSV reports 64". I would take both with a grain of salt. Depending on timing, I might be interested in skiinning up Baldy.

The TSV webcams can give you a good idea. There's also a snotel on the grounds there (Powderhorn) to check the ski area report against.

As for the La Sals, for what little it's worth, they were white top to bottom last week as seen from Canyonlands and Moab, but that was a few days after a storm. No idea how deep it was.
