Storms dump several inches of snow in Northern NM mountains

Taos Ski Valley, Angel Fire receive more than 10 inches in two days

Posted

The 2019-2020 ski season in Northern New Mexico opened with a bang as storms dumped more than ten inches of snow at area ski resorts.

In the 48 hours beginning Thanksgiving Day, Taos Ski Valley received 10 inches of snow, Angel Fire Resort saw 14 inches and Red River Ski got about 4 inches, according to reports on Ski New Mexico. Ski Santa Fe was hit with about a foot of fresh powder during the storms. 

All of those ski resorts except Angel Fire are open. Angel Fire resort opens Friday, Dec. 14. 

Below freezing temperatures and snow-packed roads  made for dicey driving conditions around the region Saturday (Nov. 30).  Wind helped drive the temperatures down.  Wind gusts are expected to reach up to 60 miles  per hour in the upper reaches of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
