SAM Magazine—June 11, 2012—According to published reports, a massive wildfire in New Mexico has damaged ski lifts at Ski Apache. The area fought the blaze, which has burned more than 35,000 acres in the Lincoln National Forest, with its own snowmaking equipment, setting up guns around its base lodge to ward off the flames. That effort, as of Monday, was successful. We will update this report as news comes in. In the meantime, here is footage from Ski Apache's webcam showing its firefighting efforts:
