Road over Rotan, NM December

We are leaving Pueblo, Colorado on December 26th and are heading down to South Texas. Our original plan was to go straight South on I-25 but am concerned about going over Rotan pass at this time of year. We can go East on Highway 50 if that is better.

Opinions or has anyone done the Rotan pass very recently?

Thanks

Your way better off on I-25. Just watch the weather you only need a 4 hour good weather window to get south of Santa Fe. 50 or 160 is no place to be in a snow event in an rv.

Thanks Chief... I actually graduated from San Juan College in Farmington some years ago.

Raton Pass will not be a problem. Make sure you can get past Glorietta and Pecos (just before Santa Fe), though ... got stuck there in a fast storm once. NMDOT wasn't equipped to keep I25 open and it was a really long night. \ken

I have trucked this area many times in the past and I can tell you that in the event of snow the Raton Pass is much better maintained than any of the other highways. Watch the weather and respect the road and conditions, you will be fine,
Cheers

SJC is a great small college. I taught fire science there. We still have a home there but are snowbirding in Florida. Good luck.
