Sandia Peak Update

Classic tracks set on service road and small meadow near upper tram terminal. The tracks in someplaces are marginal due to the inability of the track setter to cut into the hard packed snow.
Otherwise skating is also good on the service road. Fredrik Landstedt (UNM ski coach) set the classic tracks and also groomed a loop through the woods (a little over a km I think) for skating.
Considering the condition of the snow before he groomed in the woods the condition now is remarkably good. All total there is now a 4500 meters loop for skating if a small section over to the top of La Madera (in the ski area) is included.
