Pros: Trees, Terain, Fluffy Powder, Lack of Crowds, Down Home Feel

Cons: Lack of Snow, Small Resort

This is my first year skiing here and I am very impressed. The mountain is small and generally uncrowded, but the terrain is excellent and there are enough steep runs to keep it interesting for advanced skiers. There are great tree runs all over the place, provided the snow is good. That's the only downside -- winter can be sparse here. When it does snow, however, it's super light and fluffy powder.

Pros: friendly staff, good all around experience

Decent family resort, relatively small lift lines on weekends (almost empty the few weekdays I have tried), City of Santa Fe offers good eats and lodging about 20 minutes drive.  nearby for easy day trips from Albuquerque.

 

I took my family up here yesterday.  For a "never ever" skier, it cost around $75 for two sessions of two hour lessons, beginner lift ticket and equipment.  Normal adult was $60 for a lift ticket.

 

They do have a small terrain park, but I didn't venture in there so I can't offer a review on it.

 

Smaller mountain, but certainly an adequate spread of terrain for all ability levels in a family style ski environment.  I think Santa Fe offers a little of everything without any single "best run ever" at any skill level.

 

Of special note is the outstanding adaptive ski program offered by the local Adaptive ski club.  I am not a member or a shill for their organization.  What I have seen them doing though is very heartwarming.  They get all kinds of people with disabilities onto the slopes, and give them a chance to enjoy skiing that they may have never had.   From what I have read about their organization they seem willing to try to work with almost any disability.

Pros: Close to Santa Fe, Varried terrain, glades and trees.

Cons: Slow lifts, not enough upper intermediate runs(groomed). can be windy.

2nd trip to Ski Santa Fe in two years.  Returned to skiing after 10 years off.  My wife learned to ski last year.  Great experience.  Skied there three days this year.  Lots of terrain for me and my wife and lots of sunshine.  Would like to see more advanced groomed runs though.  Small mountain, saw it all in three days.  Lifts were slow compared to Beaver Creek (was there in Jan 09).  25min from Santa Fe--Lots of Hotels.  May go back next year!

Pros: Nice variety of terrain, great views

Cons: Crowded on weekends, slow lifts

As someone who used to live in Albuquerque, I quite liked Ski Santa Fe. It's not Taos, but it's only about 90 minutes or so drive time from ABQ, which makes for an easy day trip. Pretty nice variety of terrain, including some nice spots for in-the-trees skiing. Views from the top are great on a clear day. Only a single high-speed Quad...Santa Fe would definitely benefit from a few new lifts. Crowds can get pretty heavy, especially on holiday weeks when loads of Texans show up. I give it 3 stars for night life not for the mountain (which doesn't really have any), but for the city of Santa Fe, which has lots of great places to eat. (Try the Ore House, on the SW corner of the plaza.)
