    I saw some guys with skis on at the Rose Summit Parking area this morning getting ready to do whatever one does with 3" of snow on top of rock and dirt. Kind of dumb, kind of awesome.

    Zephyr Safeway has this. I opt for the "no touch" method. Gotta conserve those Clorox wipes. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=233211Click image for larger version.

    i thought perhaps method man patch would have a little more of the fresh on top so i headed that way. just before i got there i found a nice wind filled gully for the required 10 turns.

    Nice job, PD.

    Different topic . . . . I keep hearing good things about the new New Mexican restaurant that replaced the Wild Alaskan in Incline. Any firsthand reports? I love New Mexican Mexican food and Incline desperately needs more moderate and mid-range restaurant options, so I'm a little excited.

    It is newer than the old Mexican. Or rather, black beans instead of refried. And more smoke than heat on the chili. Corn over flour. And there is more snow in New Mexico as well.

    The latest from unofficial alpine:

    " If something is going to change in a positive way, we need to stand up together and say something. Because if we say nothing or assume that we canít change anything, we all stand to lose. The biggest takeaway from last weekís Keep Squaw True town hall meeting is that we need to engage as many people as we can in the process, and we canít wait to do that."

    This is important. If you haven't been to Taos, time to get edumacated/ski some great and lonely terrain. I think New Mexican is known for the heavy use of green chiles (preferably from the Hatch valley) and red chiles, whereas Southwest is more El Paso-style Tex Mex (no green chiles, lots of sauces, cheeses (queso!), etc.).

    NM food is the best. I hear AKB is buying at this new restaurant...

    The vernacular that i was taught by my local professor while during a summer of dirtbagging college course/field work between Santa Fe and Montrose (we weren't delving into any luxury culture, but the only hotel we stayed in was in Taos): tex-mex is in south of that area, "southwestern" is in that exact area, and included lots and lots of smoked chilis and the like. my wife and i cruised through that area several years later, sleeping in the truck and being on the cheap. our favorite eatery of that ilk was found in durango.

    maybe i've been misinformed, but i look forward to checking out that place on the north lake someday if it lasts.

    Funny that the Incline resident is asking a bunch of Bay Area people if they've tried the new New Mexican Incline restaurant down the road from them!

    We need a real New Mexican in here to set us straight. Main point: New Mexican/southwestern food is really damn good.

    Saw the new TGR flick last night in SF. The Squaw scene with all the legends of TGR's past films (lots of 90s skiers too) was rad - really fun Palisades scene to close out the flick. BRING ON THE SNOW

    Gerome: Hey, there are a number of Incliners on TGR. Also, we get about one new restaurant a year. It's VERY exciting.

    For the record, I am New Mexican, at least by birth. I've also lived and consumed copious amounts of Mexican food in Austin and California. My take is that New Mexican Mexican uses more chiles, various forms of fry bread, corn meal, and blue corn. It's much more Native American influenced than Tex Mex or Cal Mex. Also, if you've never had a proper New Mexican sopapilla with honey, you've lived a miserable, wasted existence.

    Well, I live in the north bay and have tried just about every restaurant in Truckee / Tahoe City / West Shore, so it's not crazy to ask regardless. On the newer places note, I'm a fan of Old Town Tap. Good pizzas. What's the name of the new New Mexican place in Incline?

    This thread is making me hungry and wanting to hit up Taos this season (meant to last year but they barely got any snow).

    Alebrijes. Will have to check out the Old Town Tap. I've started hitting Burger Me after outdoor pursuits in that area.
