We know that all ski resorts in New Mexico are currently shut down and many of you may be heading out into the mountains to work off some of those post Thanksgiving Day calories.  We’ve issued a Daily Avalanche Forecast with a danger rating and are planning on doing daily forecasts through the weekend.  If you are unfamiliar with danger ratings and avalanche problems there are great resources under the Forecast Tab on the website.  If you’re curious about the weather, part of the advisory will also include a daily weather forecast, as we know weather station data is limited here.

Our ability to issue danger ratings is heavily reliant on funding and the support of the community. A lot more people will be skiing and riding in the backcountry this year and we feel a daily avalanche product will be beneficial for northern New Mexico. If you’re new to the backcountry or interested in taking a class check out the Class Events page.

Stay safe and please recreate responsibly.  For the latest COVID-19 information in New Mexico.
