Will it be El Nino? Will this one be better for us than the last one? Maybe just wishful thinking but it feels like it.

Playing at the ski basin on a nice fall day. Nice shot, Iggy.

I'm proud of this little ham for hiking to the Nambe Falls overlook.

I see Iggy shares your taste in sun glasses.

At first we thought he was just a little beast but that kid has an indomitable sense of style and god help you if you try to impede him.

Ten inches new at Ski Santa Fe this morning!

hahaha, my reaction when i first saw that pic was that Iggy has a particular sense of style that rang familiar...he's only missing some bright fireman-red leggings or visor or similar accouterments.

nice shots geezer. stoke is palpable. the early-season snowy caps always raises the pulse.

^Post preservation service.

The stoke has given rise to quite the conflagration in these parts. My parents were kind enough to watch the boys so Alisson and I took a trip this weekend. Drove up to Leadville Saturday afternoon/evening, which is a pretty reasonable drive. Sunday morning we made a loop from Leadville toward Minturn and Vail, taking the long route to Arapahoe Basin.

Red Cliff is just kind of a neat spot.

Alisson is still trying to get the fit right on her boots and adjusting to the Dynafits. Here she makes a lazy turn approaching all of our front range friends at the bottom of A Basin.

A slight adjustment on the boots put her in a good enough place to hit the upper mountain where we found some nice snow.

The drive home was pretty rough. Some very low visibility for prolonged periods when it was snowing and blowing. We took a nice break to relax at Joyful Journey Hot Springs.

All said and done, Ski Santa Fe got 15 inches from this storm! And they already had a fair bit of snow up there. Game ON in New Mexico.

Senora Diana at Kaj's school told us it snowed a foot in Truchas where she lives -- location of last photo in initial post. Yeah yeah yeah.
