I met Arturo in Albuquerque, we drove to Taos and went skiing the next day. Sadly while the snow coverage was good, the temps were way too high, and the snow had frozen almost all the way to the top. The conditions were not horrible (ice to slush), but they weren't great either. We ended up only staying one day to get to Jackson Hole that was supposed to get fresh snow.
We went up to the hike terrain on the ridge, and the top had some kind of icy powder, almost like shaved ice, interesting to ride. after that, it went kind of downhill a bit (ah!)
Be careful on the lifts :)
After a day of skiing, we had seen all the mountain, and kind of imagined how good it could have been given non icy snow :-
