Nestled in the stunning Sangre de Cristo (which means blood of Christ) Mountains just a few miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico, Ski Santa Fe is 660 acres and 72 trails of sheer skiing fun! With a base area elevation of 10,350 feet, Ski Santa Fe is among the highest ski areas in the continental United States. The panoramic vistas of the Sangre de Cristo Range is stunning and the skiing is phenomenal. You can enjoy everything from steep bump runs, powder filled chutes, glade and tree skiing, and plenty of groomed trails.

Ski Santa Fe receives 225 inches of snow each year, but also has plenty of snowmaking capabilities. The season typically runs from Thanksgiving to early April. Roughly 20% of the terrain is devoted to beginning skiers, while 40% is allocated to intermediate skiers and 40% to expert runs, so there are plenty of choices. In addition, just opened this year is the new Ski Santa Fe New Free Style Fun Park. Dubbed “The Bone Yard,” the new terrain fun park offers 4 boxes, 3 rails, 1 C-Box. 1 tree-ride, 1 Wall-ride and 3 jibs

Chipmunk Corner is a full service, on-site children’s complex complete with ski and snow play areas. Ski Santa Fe offers nursery and daycare services for children ages 3 months to 3 years old, as well as several ski instruction programs to teach young children, ages 4-11 to ski, as well as snowboard.

At Ski Santa Fe, the fun doesn’t stop when the snow melts. The Sangre de Cristo range offers a wide variety of hiking, biking and camping options. In the Fall, the ski area has an amazing Fall Scenic Chairlift ride that will allow you to witness the wonder of the aspen turning gold from high above.

The Ski Santa Fe Base Lodge and the Totemoff Bar/Grill & Lodge have a wide array of hearty fare (like burgers, chicken sandwiches and breakfast burritos) to appease any appetite. If you need to stop for a breather, La Casa Mall has some terrific shopping opportunities, including the Wintermill Shop, which has a styling collection of the finest ski wear. While there is no lodging on the mountain itself, nearby Santa Fe every kind from lodging, from condos to cabins, hotels to motels, bed & breakfast to resorts and more. It also has entertainment opportunities galore, including museums, performing arts centers, craft shops and distinctive dining places. Finally, Santa Fe is the hub of artistic talent in the Southwest, so a trip to the many galleries is well worth your time.
