Enchanted Forest is one of those "out of the way" places that must be explored. The skiing is fantastic and the trails are some of the most unique and beautiful anywhere. It is very commonplace to see wildlife of all sorts: mule deer, elk, bobcats (it is on Bobcat Pass =), ptarmigan, coyotes, picas, squirrels, etc. It is a very active place for forest creatures.
XC skiing in New Mexico seems like an oxymoron, but there is great snow and great conditions at Enchanted Forest. The Millers have done an extraordinary job in providing a most unique xc skiing and/or snowshoeing experience that is right in line with everything else New Mexican. There is an wonderfully intangible character to the place that must be experienced to understand.
