    Looks like 5-6 in the higher elevations.

    Otero, should still have an inch or two. RM/WM will be a slog.

    Foothills until Saturday or Sunday, but I'm thinkin' a roadtrip PHX might be in worx.

    There's between 3 - 12" all over the EM so no go up here. Here's the foothills last night. It was really nice conditions.

    Socorro has good stuff, never been. LC is very similar to Foothills riding in regards to visual effect. The terrain is a bit more challenging, though. Never been any further south then that. T or C, forget it

    If you're not here for three weeks the conditions will change several times between now and then so I'd imagine there will be plenty of choices when you arrive no need to drive. I was able to ride everything but Sandia all through last winter.

    Just a dusting in Arroyo Seco, none in Taos. No snow on our lower trails including a new one along the gorge. "The Rift Trail" small climbs with copious fast rolling sections. I think it is about 12 miles long, but haven't mapped it yet. It is near the Taos Overlook, that piece of road as you come into Taos that looks up the gorge.

    In Los Alamos it snowed off and on all day yesterday but never really accumulated. The sun facing trail I can see from my house in Bayo canyon doesn't have snow on it. I may head out for a ride at lunch time since anything that was wet will be frozen. The higher elevations around here definitely have snow but wouldn't be very deep until you get up to the ski hill.

    Yeah, I am sure it will be sunny and 65 deg when I get there.

    A few inches here in Gallup, maybe double that in the Zuni Mts. Plan to drive up today and find out.

    Surely this is not the end?

    Note to self:

    1.new line on the ice fishing rods

    2.get a pair of skate boots (size 12) for solomon bindings (aren't you glad you hot waxed your xc skis before you put them away last spring )

    3. Haul firewood up to cabin while driveway is open so GF doesn't have to pull it in with the sled.

    4. text J. Lloyd to bring the cargo sleds up
    I ride with the best dogs.

    I hiked & skied Santa Fe ski area this morning before work. 6 in of powder on a thin base. It was cool to have some powder for my first day of skiing! There's a couple inches of snow starting just after Nun's Corner on the ski hill road. It gets a little deeper as you go up.

    High singletrack is getting snow for sure. Under 9000 ft it could still be rideable for a while, though.

    We've received more snow in Los Alamos today than we did yesterday . One thing I've learned today is that wunderground.com's radar is much more accurate than weather.com . We've had a couple of inches in the last few hours. Out there was my snowless trail earlier this morning.

    I like the sounds of that!


    Here, it's mid 70's, humid as hell, gushing down rain and we have Tornado Warnings all over the place..

    Another 2" here in the East Mtns this afternoon. About 5" on the ground now. Looks like Otero is out for a while.

    I am so ready for some NM..

    My city in Louisiana has been center stage on the Weather Channel all evening... massive rain, flooding and numerous tornadoes.

    2 more weeks..

    We went for a short ride this evening up Perimeter, but the 2 inches of snow on the ground was much more slippery than I'd guessed given how wet it was in town. Good fun, but lots of pushing, and we bailed at Pipeline. Warmed up in the garage with hot cider & tequila. At the risk of alienating the skiers and boarders, I'm hoping this all melts off and we get another dry spell.

    Stay safe Nate, although I have always wanted to see a tornado. Seen all the other big weather events but never a tornado.

    Snow piling up big time here. Hasn't stopped for hours.

    Skrew those bastids.

    This kind of miserable weather should have been postponed until December, at least.

    Might have to mount up the Freddie's Revenz...

    Great pic, that's your bike and was destined to be yours, I just had the pleasure of building it and getting it to its rightful owner.

    Maybe but it's the right bike for you no doubt.

    I went by FT today and they had a nice Flux built up. Very tempting. The guy there was saying so you're a Turner guy to which I admitted my homerness, he then started to gush about how Ibis was the best frame under the sun. I had to set him straight that the mojo was a full blown ghey bike that twitched like a lap dog surrounded NBA players. I took one for a weekend prior to buying the TURNER and I hated it. So much for good taste.

    Anyway, this thread clearly illustrates how beautiful NM is! Say goodbye to those flat swamps Nate and start getting pumped to come back to mtb nirvana. You may want to get a Turner though Pivots are ghey too

    What a mess..! 3-4 tornadoes, major downpours that lasted 12 hrs and, at times, rain was falling at a rate of over 8" per hour. The ground here is totally saturated since we already had 27" of rain so far this month and when the winds started, tress were falling over all over the place. It will be raining thru the rest of the day today.

    All of our trails will unridable for weeks to come and some are under 6 ft of water..

    Sorry you had a slippery ride Joe. You should have gone to Carrie's work party instead. They had some really good microbrews & bratwursts . I may try to make out out there today but I'll stay away anything too steep.

    Sorry PJ, missed your reply. I'm working Saturdays now...I had to be the HATCHET MAN last week at work. I been getting my winter STOKE on though.

    Here's what I bought today!!!

    I can't tell if the images attached, so forgive me if I make a noob mistake.

    Too bad I'm not a Dead Head or a fashionista. This rig does not match at all, but I been skiing these skis for several years, so graphics be damned.!

    Fun-looking set up. You gotta catch up with us for some backcountry skiing. We'll be doing some really cool stuff this winter/spring. I'll show you some places/lines that will blow your mind.



    If not, catch up with us for lift-served. Enjoy your new toys.
