If you’re a Coloradan complaining about the lack of snow in your state, New Mexico skiers don’t have time for your bullshit.
New Mexico’s premiere ski area, Taos Ski Valley closed yesterday with only 78″ of snow this winter, making it one of the worst winters on record in terms of accumulations. The lack of snow kept the relatively new Kachina Peak lift closed all season and some of the best lines in the ski area never opened up.
Last year, the resort saw more than double that snowfall with a final tally of 192″. Taos allegedly averages 321″ a year but over the past 5 years, the ski area has seen an average annual snowfall of 161.8″.
