Nice route, well marked even in light snow the trail contours are easy enough to see. I did accidentally close app map at peak so we used the "green" sierra Blanca ski trail back the base.

Hiked up then took a nice (and free!) gondola ride back down. Lots of beautiful views and changes in scenery, although a recent wildfire has left parts of the forest bare. There are ample lush wooded areas and meadows, however.
