Santa Fe Area
What's in this Area?
From the drop in the route heads to the skiers right down a relatively wide chute, which bends left approximately half way down. There can be a short ice pitch on the lower part. Once out of the Couloir ski out of the corrie back to the ski area.
The intial slope is the steepest section and often corniced. The remainder is at less than forty degrees. An easier entrance can be had on the skiers left. A fall in the top section is ill advised as it could result in the skier tumbling down Aladdin's Mirror Direct.[more]
Plenty of good skiing around here. Most of the skiing is below treeline, but occasionally you can get up high and enjoy the views. The sun shines a lot down there, but if you look for snow on the north facing slopes, you generally will not be disappointed.
How to Get There
From Albuquerque, go North. There are some longer approaches, and some shorter approaches.
