Santa Fe in February -- Historical Snow, etc and Things to Do?

Jump to last reply

We have an opportunity to visit Santa Fe in February, and have booked our flights already so we're committed to our dates, but the more I read around the web the more I wonder what will be open that time of year, and it's starting to feel as though we may be more at the mercy of the weather than I'm used to on the East Coast. (That said a bit tongue in cheek after two years of major storms, and a childhood spent in Illinois and Wisconsin).
I've noticed Art Feast is scheduled for the weekend we are in town (heartening) as we love art and food. I had hoped to go up to Abiquiu and see Ghost Ranch, but it looks like that is closed in February? And Taos Pueblo's calendar looks like it is closed in February?
We have six days, so I"m hoping even if it snows some of the time, or there's a big storm, we'll not be snowed in the entire time but would love to hear whether most restaurants are open, galleries, pueblos (had hoped to visit San Ildefonso and/or Santa Clara, would love to drive the Turquoise Trail and take the High Road to Taos. I know some of this is wait and see but does this sound a. nuts, b. doable if the weather behaves, or c. something I haven't considered?
Of the smaller towns that have had an influx of artists/galleries, could someone tell me which might be the most worth checking out? I'm loving the new Fodor's Guide but would appreciate some insider/native perspective on February. I'm fine with it being quiet -- we've visited some great places off season before.
Thanks ahead of time for your help.
