Wednesday, December 4, 8:44 a.m.: Enchanted Forest is open for skiing and snowshoeing, but we have had no telephone or Internet since the Friday night blizzard. Cell phones do not work well at the base area but you can try to text me (Ellen) at 575-770-2430 if you need information.

Watch our Facebook page for updates.

All others park on the highway and call for a shuttle. Please be courteous to the people who live there and use caution when climbing or ascending the hill to the EFXC parking lot.
