The Capulin Snow Play Area will remain closed this weekend

Contact(s): Donna Nemeth

The Capulin Snow Play Area, located on the Sandia Ranger District of Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands, will remain closed this weekend. 

The popular sledding area was scheduled to open on December 19 and 20, but conditions are not favorable at this time. A snow base of at least 12” is required to avoid erosion and resource damage.  The area does not have enough snow at this time. 

Capulin Snow Play Area will open later in the season provided an adequate amount of snow exists.  It is tentatively scheduled to open on January 9, 10, 16, and 17.  Opening dates for February and March have yet to be determined.
