Hello everyone! I will be coming to the Taos area from Dallas to hike Wheeler Peak in the beginning of June. I'm looking at my schedule and am finding an extra day. Is it worth hiking up the ski runs to make it to Kachina Peak? I couldn't find many trip reports of a hike up the ski lifts and over to Kachina. I saw some blog posts about people who took the lifts up and then hiked highline ridge to Kachina. But somehow that seems like cheating. I'm curious to get a locals opinion and appreciate any insight you could provide.
