Apache Peak

Once you reach the ridge you can continue to the summit or head straight down the Couloir.  This is a GREAT line for sneaking in some turns late in the season.  The route faces North and holds snow similar to Lamb Slide Couloir on Long's Peak but without turing to ice.

Details

This is a relatively mellow peak on one side, but the other side is known for its rock climbing so that might give you an idea about what the terrain is like. The resort is not always open, so a lot of people from Albuquerque will go out during larger snow storms and ski in the sandias.

How to Get There

There is a tram from the east side of the city that will go up to the top of Sandia Peak. You can also go for about a 50 minute drive around the back side and drive most of the way to the top
