The local's guide to heading south, choosing tubers and lodge-living during the snowy months-plus movies, books and a winter culture calendar.


It's true that we escaped (or missed out on) Santa Fe's traditional late October helping of snow; the mountains are limned in white, but our adobes are still soaking up nothing but sun. Winter doesn't even begin, in a technical ***image3***sense, until the solstice on December 21, but any fool with fingertips and a nose can tell it's getting cold. For some of us, it's time to flee to southern climes. For others, it's time to hunker down with books or movies (here and here) or find indoor ways to catch up on local culture and our own ***image7***creative urges. There's plenty of Santa Feans chomping at the bit to hit snow-covered slopes and trails, and plenty more scheming on how to avoid any such thing. The people of San Juan Pueblo divide themselves into Summer People and Winter People, and used to live across the Rio Grande from each other. ***image8***Today's New Mexico is not so different in terms of social separation, but our seasons are inclusive; summers full of wind and afternoon rain, winters full of sunshine-Santa Fe has a little something for everyone, all year 'round.
