Cumbres Pass Yurts

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Services monitors the snow depth at Cumbres Pass with a Snotel gauge (Cumbres Trestle) which produces daily reports. The Cumbres Pass gauge is at 8′ and the LaManga Pass gauge is at 7′. Despite the recent warm weather there is still a lot of snow.

The snotel report for Taos Ski Valley can be found under New Mexico/ Taos/ Taos Powderhorn.
