Big Air at Ski Santa Fe
Ski Santa Fe
"Only 25 mins from downtown Santa Fe, it can seem like your personal ski resort on the weekdays. Green and blue ski runs are well groomed, and there are many tree runs, and some quite tough black diamond runs as well. Restaurant is mid-mountain very close to the upper terrain lifts. Staff is super-friendly, and lifts rarely have a line. Tops out at 12,000ft, so the snow stays late into the season."

Powder Day at Pajarito
"It is a paradise for intermediate and advanced skiers. The hill has many blue and black runs. The hills steepest run Breathless, has a 29° pitch making it one of the steepest runs in NM. During the holidays, it is perfect because it has no lift lines unlike Taos and Santa Fe. Highly Recommended."

The View on the Way Down at Sandia Peak
"When I have been there, the conditions have been great but I went only a day or two after winter storms. The lifts can be a little slow.
My wife has taken lessons and the instructors were awesome. They separated adults and children by skill level and really took their time explaining the basics to beginners. I was extremely impressed with how much she improved and her technique with a few lessons."

Finding the Way Down at Sipapu
“During the week crowds are great, but call ahead to see when the school groups are coming. They did a fantastic gob on remodeling the bathrooms too. The staff was outstanding as usual. They were very helpful and smiling all the time.”

Skiing Under the Stars at Angel Fire
“I brought my son and his friends here to ski for winter break. They are a mix of beginners and very advanced skiers. Previous visits to Angel Fire had been fun but I was worried that the more advanced skiers in the group might prefer some time at Taos Ski Valley. We got lucky with some great snow conditions during our visit and enjoyed our time skiing at Angel Fire. The mountain offered something for everyone and we were able to notch some difficult runs with the area known as the steeps and some runs that required hiking access..”

Bluebird Day in Taos
“The most friendly, helpful, and accessible folks at any ski area I've been to: shuttle drivers, direction/welcomers, locker guy (Tomas!), lift ticket scanners and operators, instructors, etc. Ski patrol is the real deal. I attribute this all to the fact that Taos is a serious ski area, with the assumption that the skiers are as well. .”
