Re: Truchas

Thanks for the post Lobojasper, and I appreciate your advice. As far as postholing, I'm well aware of the issues they cause for other people. There was no skin track and if there was I certainly would have avoided it on foot. I also completely understand your concern over the degradation of alpine a...

Re: Truchas

Hey Everybody, I am thinking about packing into trampas lake sometime between may 25-30. I was wondering if anybody has been up that way since the most recent posts on this forum and might have some info on snow conditions up high as well as the approach. One major issue is I'll likely be bringing a...

Re: Taos Ski Valley Region

Hey guys, finally got a weekend off and was considering heading up to ski taos. Just saw the snow report from 4/12 on this thread but was wondering in general what the skinning situation is.

I'm assuming I just drive as far as I can up the resort road and then start hiking? Lastly, is there any website in particular that you guys find b...
