    We are going on vacation to New Mexico next week. We are going to hit up Roswell, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and probably Taos and then Carlsbad on the way back to check out the caverns. My question is where can we take our daughter to play in the snow? We aren't looking to go skiing, but we would like to stop someplace to check out some snow. Anyone from New Mexico have any suggestions or ideas?

    I live in albuquerque, and the only snow I see right now is at the top of the Sandia mountains, and its pretty recent. Usually this time of year the good snow is at the skii resorts. there are a bunch other guys from here on TW. you could also post this in the regional forum

    Not sure about snow this time of year in NM, but my wife's family is from Carlsbad and the caverns should be a good time.

    Thanks for the fast reply and the info. We are planning on hitting up the Sandia Peak tram so hopefully we get a chance to check out some snow.

    I think it is too late in the year but my kids really like the bat flights.

    Down in the SW corner, your best bet would be to get up to Ruidoso. ABQ, best bet is Sandia (the tram should get you into some). Santa Fe and Taos you could get into some snow probably at Angel Fire or Taos ski valley. I was in Taos for Thanksgiving. We took the kids sledding about an hour west of Taos on Hwy 64 near the continental divide. The farther you go up, the deeper it gets. The north facing slopes had about a foot of good stuff for the kids to play in.
