"Join me this ski season..."
Braden is a recreational and professional skier and snowboarder and internationally-accredited instructor who has been slicing up the slopes since the age of four, and a lover of all things cold and snowy.
Welcome! If you’re reading this you have found a great destination for all your snow sports interests. Join me this season as I take a look at skills and techniques, hidden runs and local secrets, killer gear reviews, the most up to date Northern New Mexico ski info and handy tips and tricks any skier or boarder should know. I’ll talk about the newest innovations in the sport, the best ways to pull off that trick that keeps ending in disaster and give insight into the best destinations this winter. Stay tuned to find out about the best local hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country ski trails. We’re looking at another La Nina year, which means that Northern New Mexico skiers and boarders will need all the help we can get to find the best snow, and make the most out of this season.
Have no fear! The Snowman is here!
Whether you’re a seasoned ski bum, just learning, or have never stepped foot on the snow, you can find something here that will interest you. Winter in New Mexico can be a bear, so to speak. However, with this guide to Northern New Mexico Skiing and Boarding, everyone can find something to appreciate about our beautiful and frozen backyard this season.
What’s that? Snow fun is no fun?
For those of you who have a grudge against the cold and wet, I have something for you as well. You don’t have to rack up a fortune in gear and medical bills to enjoy the winter season. I’ll be talking about all the great places to enjoy après-ski drinks, food and lodging specials for skiers (Santa Fe is very accommodating to the snow-sports crowd), and even some fun winter events for everyone. That’s right, there IS fun to be had below freezing (just ask a Canadian)!
If you’ve lived in Santa Fe for any length of time, you may have noticed the fraternity that we pride here. If you’ve ever been up on the lift you know that brotherhood is magnified tenfold. Be a part of it. Don’t miss out on the fun that everyone will be talking about. Keep up with The Snowman blog. Oh, and…
