Re: Santa Fe Region

Nice vid! I have to admit I laughed a little when you bogged down at the beginning, but I cringed at a couple of those scrapes.

I’ve seen worse snowpacks this time of year...but I’ve seen a lot better too.

More backcountry travelers likely means less experience and knowledge.

To be honest, I was wondering if you were real. You were in the midst of dozens of Russian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian, and vape-sales requests for membership. I took a chance based on your IP address. Sorry it took so long.

Welcome!

Pieps beacon switch issues

Some other forums (fora?) have been having discussions about the switch on Pieps DSP Sport and Pro. Some of the switches seem to either wear, break, or just get positioned in such a way that they can turn off accidentally. Which could be pretty concerning. Black Diamond and Pieps have acknowledged t...

Re: Ski Santa Fe

And don’t forget that the FS will allow things like scout camps and leased cabins to restrict access year-round.

Re: Ski Santa Fe

Just a couple thoughts. Snowmaking areas get closed in non-pandemic years - there’s danger from 440v lines and high pressure hoses lying on the ground, as well as from grooming cats, slat fences, etc. Since the only snow you can ski on now is man made, well... I used to work there, and I used to wor...

Re: Ski Santa Fe

I just thought of a couple more examples of public lands where you can’t go anywhere you want any time you want - national parks and wildlife refuges and campgrounds. Those get closed when the land agency thinks it’s a good idea.

Re: Ski Santa Fe

I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure these are the circumstances. 1. The lease is year round. I tried to explain that just because the land is ‘public’ doesn’t mean that the agencies that manage the land (for you) can’t close it off. I listed some examples above - cabins, camps, mines, etc. Agencie...

Re: Ski Santa Fe

I’ve always looked at it this way: ski areas lease public land, and the lease gives them rights to control access. Think of things like cabins, scout camps, logging and mining on public lands. Those activities/lessees all can limit access. And the case is pretty solid where SSF is making snow...the ...
