I’ve had a couple real nice days in Albuquerque, a nice run, some hiking in an old volcanic area with ancient native drawings all over the place, some good New Mexican food and beers. Packed up this morning and heading up to the mountains now.

Took a nice scenic drive up north. We checked out the rio grande gorge which was cool. Lots of clouds covering the mountains, hoping a nice layer of fresh snow is up there. I noticed that Kachina has been closed the last several days due to control work. Maybe it opens again tomorrow if I’m lucky!

Hi dickheads, today was a ridiculously good Taos day for me. I met up with some TGR guys and had to step the game up a bit. Did 5 west basin hikes which might be a record for me. Hit Meatball, Hidden Chute, Waterfowl, Zdarsky and Stauffenburg. Had never hit hidden chute and waterfowl before, but it was nice to have a couple crash test dummies to follow down the gnarly lines. Aside from West B, I skied Pollux twice, hit the Bambi chutes, longhorn, als run and Werner trees. Had shin deep powder on a few runs, and there wasn’t a rock to be found. Coverage is soooo good right now (for Taos). Kachina still closed, maybe manana! Went almost bell to bell, I’m fucking exhausted. I’ll have a bunch of good pics of me, but waiting to get them sent to me. For now...

Day 3, damn was it windy. I’m happy I got any skiing in today, I was really surprised there were no wind holds to start off.

Started off the day with 2 steep tree runs off of Bambi ridge. First did Sir Arnold Lunn, then Lorelei Trees. Pockets of powder, some nice bumpy flow and a bit of crusty snow in the more sparse trees.

Went over to the backside where it was less windy and skied Hunziker Bowl, Totally Wiard, El Funko and some groomers. Some nice wind-filled spots here and there. Made a hike up the ridge and skied Zdarsky again which I’m really enjoying.

I made plans to meet my wife and mom for lunch so I took 7a up to the top and dropped into the Werner Chute into Longhorn for a 1,600 ft vertical thigh burner. The winds filled up Werner with 3-4 inches of snow and it skied beautifully. ROTD for sure.

After lunch, lifts 1 and 2 were shut down so I drove up an icy mountain road to the backside and parked at the Bavarian which is near the bottom of lift 4. Did a couple runs until they shut down 4 and then I called it a day. Needed a beer after the drive down, it was rough in the rental car.

All in all it was a good day and I have some left in the tank for tomorrow.
