I'm flying into ABQ for a 3 day ski trip with my 8 year old daughter over Presidents Day weekend. This will be our 3rd straight year. I'm experienced and have skied Taos & Santa Fe (several occasions each). I have also been to Wolf Creek and Durango out of ABQ. For my 2 trips with my daughter, we skied Santa Fe and she was in the ski school the full time. I'd like to have her in school for a day this trip and then have her ski with me - she was doing well at the end of the trip last year. We stayed at a motel in Santa Fe.
Right now, the snow is not good, but I'm hopeful things will improve. I'd appreciate any suggestions on a new skiing/lodging venue. I'd like a relatively inexpensive place to stay, but not be too far from the ski area. If skiing Taos, there are some rentals in Arroyo Seco that might fit the bill. Another option would be staying in the base area at Red River or Angel Fire. Sipapu has some appeal since I'll be teaching my daughter for a portion of the trip.
Pajarito may be another good choice - I'm not sure how long the drive is from lodging. Wolf Creek is a long drive, but based on conditions now, it's appealing due to snow conditions and likely a small crowd. I enjoyed skiing there years ago.....
As you can tell, I'm looking at all options this year. I'll need to make a lodging decision fairly soon - so any help on location info would be appreciated
