This is a second try at organizing a Wolf Creek weekend outing. While the skiing in New Mexico has been great this season,  Wolf Creek remains the snow monster of the southern Rockies. Their base has reached a phenomenal 136 inches.  I'm interested in organizing a group to rent a house in Pagosa and ski Friday, Saturday, and perhaps part of Sunday. We could drive to Purgatory one of those days if the interest is there. Lift tickets at Wolf Creek are reasonably priced by mainline Colorado standards ($72 for adults, $43 for age 65+). To socialize in the evenings, we will either go out to dinner or cook dinners in, and certainly will not want to miss the hot springs. I hope that we will have participants interested in cross-country or snowshoeing too. There are several places to do so, including the Alberta Lake area near the ski area, and, if the snow continues as good as it is, lower elevations in the upper San Juan Valley, up Piedra Creek, etc. I would propose to leave Los Alamos at 3-4 PM on Thursday afternoon March 7, and drive back home on Sunday the 10th, hopefully after spending the morning on the snow. Let me know if you are interested; I will ask for a $150 deposit for the lodging for the 3 nights. This ought to cover the actual cost, but it will depend on what lodging we can find.
