This is a great place to ski, period! I have been skiing here on a regular basis since 1996. Since its high elevation skiing the snow is excellent, especially in the trees. They also have some excellent tree runs. Get up early in the morning...More

Went Oct 4. The chairlifts were closed but we drove the winding road uphill. The views of the golden Aspens were beautiful and the view of the mountains were great. It was about 10 degrees cooler at the top and very windy.

Here is why I recommend Ski Santa Fe: (1) very inexpensive compared to Park Cities and Boulder to Aspen, (2) wide variety of slope difficulties -- accommodates the whole family, (3) close to the city of Santa Fe which has some of the best food...More

Santa Fe doesn't have the rep of more famous ski areas, but the product is mostly excellent. The mountain can comfortably welcome beginners but what is largely unknown is that it has some serious gnar for the more extreme skiers, including steep slopes with tight...More
