Taos Ski Valley

“I was on a ski trip in Southern Colorado over my Spring Break, making the rounds at Crested Butte, Wolf Creek, Silverton, Telluride, etc. At the advice of one of my friends who works as an instructor at Breckenridge, I used the extra day in my trip to go down to Taos. Prior to that, I didn't know much about it other than a preconceived notion that it wouldn't be great because it wasn't in...” --jswim123

Santa Fe

Santa Fe

“ In August I was required to move to Albuquerque for work and was a little bummed about leaving Colorado. I knew taos wasn't too far but being a 3hr drive made it a little far for day trips. I also knew about Sandia Peak right in Abq but heard it wasn't great.   Unfortuanately this turned out to be a terrible snow year and Sandia stil hasn't opened anything but the bunny hill...” --lonewolf210

Ski Apache

Ski Apache

“Ski Apache is a great place to ski. I have been skiing there since 1967. There is a great variety of terrain from gentle groomed to cruisers to scary steep runs and intermediates in between. They have a great system of snow making in place, which helps to make up for the years where there isn't much snowfall. When the snowfall has been abundant it is a really great place to ski. I have found...” --LCNM9789

Pajarito Mountain

Pajarito Mountain

“I reccomend this for anyone who would like to ski here.  It isn't a mountain that you should ski for a few days but, one or two days is perfect.  You can ski more runs thatn ever imagined compared to the bigger mountains.  It's also a simple mountain the chairlift system isn't complicated and it is hard to get seperated from your group.  the snow can be rocky at places on the catwalks but...” --pajaritoskiier

Sipapu

“ One of the best resorts for that family friendly feel.  Small, but enjoyable mountain, no crowds, low cost.  I will go again with my family.   Low cost structure with an assortment of odd "ski free" categories.  Military, Age 40, and fourth graders all ski free this year.   An easy drive from Taos so you can stay there and travel here for one day to...” --Tirnan

Sandia Peak

Sandia Peak

“As an Albuquerque resident, there are no shortages of ski resorts within a day/overnight drive; but sometimes, you just want to wake up, throw your gear on, and be right there.  This is the advantage of Sandia Peak; the slopes can be reached in around a half hour, with a drive that virtually any car can make. The area itself is actually fairly scenic, though it won't blow you away...” --madcat207

“ I once skied here years ago and quite a lot. The area has changed I am sure but still I think my brief review may be helpful. This is a family oriented area with adequate though limited terrain. Good for intermediates. I recommend it for families. Great ambiance! ” --jimidee33

Red River

Red River

“I spent an afternoon at Red River the last time I visited Taos, NM just to see what is was all about. I was less than impressed (to say the least). The $45 lift ticket wasn't too hard to swallow, but I soon realized why it was so economically priced. They only had two lifts open - both of which were very slow and accessed very little skiable terrain. I credit this partially to a poor snow year...” --starsfan989
