Thanks for putting this up Bob. I found this quote most enteratining:

The Forest Service seems to be less aware of the trend toward skiing the sidecountry.

“It’s OK to ski in the wilderness area, but I’m talking cross-country skiing,” Santa Fe Ranger District press officer Lawrence Lujan says. “[Backcountry skiing] is allowed, but it’s not encouraged. At this time last year, I was answering a media question for this exact same situation. People are going out where they’re not supposed to, and they wind up getting in trouble.”

The Forest Service plans to release a sheet of winter recreation tips in the next two weeks.

I don't know Mr. Lujan, but I think he's need to get in touch with the winter recreation base for his Ranger District.

Overall, not a bad piece.
