One of my ski friends had to cancel his trip to Taos and room at Alpine Village Suites for next week because if an injury.

It's a spacious king bed room that is still available for 01/28-02/04 dates. Alpine Village Suites is a great place to stay at the resort base. I stayed there a few times and I am staying this year too.

The room:

You did DRILLS?!? Love it!

:D:D:D:):):)

Did you all then do it with your poles held up in front of you or across your arms?
If they're not inflatable, I don't care.

@mdf on Fabian(?) off Chair 2 at Taos.

We did a few post-lunch laps on the lower front - Longhorn, Al’s Run, Edelweiss Gully, Rhoda’s, etc.

Finished the day off with this run.

This is why I love skiing with Sandy. After skiing Longhorn, I say "do you want to finish off the day with a groomer?"
"Sure, let's go up chair 2 and ski Blitz"
You notice she doesn't say no, she just pretends Blitz is a groomer.
We went through the rabbit hole and then punched through the trees into the next chute.
The snow in there had barely been skied. I'll bet Stauffenberg is even better.

Hint - when you punch through the trees, take the lower traverse over the ridge. The upper one required some downclimbing (or more guts than I have).

Sandy and I got to ski a couple hours with Doreen this afternoon. (All but the last couple Sandy mentioned -- Al's, Edelweiss, Etchs, and a bunch of bump laps.) She is a great skier, and a lot of fun. Thanks!

I brightened this up a little cause it's a good pic of my ski buddy.
