Santa Fe Ski Resort Review

Santa Fe Ski Resort, otherwise know as Ski Santa Fe, is high in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, a short 16 miles from beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico. With a base elevation of 10,350 feet, Ski Santa Fe is among the highest ski areas in the United States.

The runs cover a wide range from isolated beginner trails to plenty of cruisers, tree runs, glades and some long bump jumps blended in. The longest one is three miles. There are 72 runs to choose from covering roughly 660 acres. The runs are serviced by 7 lifts, 1 quad lift, 2 triple chairs, 2 double chairs and 2 surface lifts. The vertical drop is 1,725 feet.

The runs are divided between 20% beginner, 40% intermediate and 40% expert. They have an average of 225 inches of annual snow fall and snow making capacity for about half the mountain.

The ski season at Santa Fe Ski Resort is from late November to early April and the hours of operation are from 9 to 4 daily. For more information about costs and ski conditions call them at 505-982-4429.

The Santa Fe Ski Resort has two dining areas, a bar and grill at mid mountain and a cafeteria style restaurant at the mountain base. Chipmunk Corner is for the kids providing ski lessons, snow play and day care. Also for the kids is the Children's Adventure Land. There is a rental shop and a retail shop and they can become quite busy on weekends, so be prepared. Beginners can take lessons at their PSIA certified ski School.

Snowboarding is allowed on all the runs and rentals are available at the rental shop. The Bone Yard Freestyle Terrain Park is brand new and sure to be a hit with all of you who prefer snowboards over skis.

There is no lodging at the mountain but the town of Santa Fe, just minutes away, has lodging and dining of all types and for all budgets. And while you are in Santa Fe be sure to take in some of the local culture. There is always plenty to do in that wonderful town, it deserves some of your time.

You might want to visit one of the many museums like the Center for Contemporary Arts, the El Museo Cultural, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, The Palace of the Governors or the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian.

Events of all types are always happening in Santa Fe like the Fiesta de Santa Fe, the Burning of Zozobra, the Indian Market, the Spanish Market or the International Folk Art Market.

For the best in art try the Santa Fe Gallery Association and the Santa Fe Art Institute. For a little more active Santa Fe fun try the many miles of hiking and biking trails. And the restaurants are way over the top. From the expensive to the local diner, it's hard to order a bad meal in this town known for some of the best dining in the world.

Whether you are skiing at the Santa Fe Ski Resort or taking in the splendor of Santa Fe you are just about guaranteed a good time.
