ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A petition has been started to save the University of New Mexico men’s and women’s skiing program.
UNM announced Thursday it’s cutting the program to save the athletic department about $600,000 a year.
A Change.org petition is going around asking for signatures to give to the Board of Regents.
At last check, it has more than $3,000 signatures. The ski team has been in existence since 1970 and brought UNM its first national team title in any sport in 2004.
