Northwestern New Mexico Sloping Near Chama

L.P. How sent in this site in he Northwestern corner of New Mexico just outside of Chama.

He says  “Great landing area and my longest flight so far is over an hour with my Philip 600 e-powered hotliner. In the fall the color is beautiful not to mention surprising the train buffs with an airshow at one of the most beautiful spot in NM.

Directions:

  • Go north after Chama to Cumbre pass.
  • At the top there is a narrow gauge tour train stop.
  • Right after the pass, take the first left on to a dirt road and another left right away. (going behind the train station) 50~70 yards later you’ll see a hiking trail going up the saddle on your right. (if you get to the underpass, you’ve gone too far).
  • A short/easy 5 minute hike and you are there.

I made the trip to fly up there from Santa Fe, which is a two hour drive, about four times.

Conditions had been winds 15~20 mph and when it isn’t blowing the thermal from the valley is just fantastic. I am not sure but I think on top of the pass is 10,500ft.
