We are excited for the upcoming winter season and providing Northern New Mexico with backcountry avalanche forecasts and education. As we wait for snow, we are currently working on new things for the upcoming season. We are in the process of creating a new website with a big thanks to the National Avalanche Center and Sawtooth Avalanche Center for their help and resources on this endeavor. We are also partnering with Silverton Avalanche School for avalanche courses in New Mexico this season. As we find out more details on dates we will post them to the website. Right now is great time to dust off your gear and make sure everything is in working order.

العناية بالبشرة I noticed signs of loose wet surface slides in sunny areas and got a bit of snow sticking to my skins over by Wildy Bowl pit. Given the more stable results I'd gotten elsewhere I was a bit surprised at the RP fractures I got near Wildy. I also saw quite a bit of surface hoar, larger near Williams Lake Trail and smaller as I went up in altitude. With my low level of experience and being solo I opted to stick to shallower slopes up into Wildy Bowl but was not super concerned. I did not ascend up the slopes inside the bowl once I got there and was getting to tired to do another pit in there.
