Sandia peak snow and ski conditions
Finally a post for 2013 for Sandia Peak. I was hoping a couple days ago that I would be reporting that grooming had taken place but that didn't happen. However Sandia Peak has about a foot of snow on the trails surrounding the tram service road (including the road). Classic skiing can be found and is quite good except for the occasional rock that can be found. So I recommend that you use your rock skis unless you stick to the service road. I don't recommend trying to skate yet as snow is unpacked except where snowboarders have been across it (either with their boots or boards).
