Ski Santa Fe

Nestled at 7,000 feet in the the Rocky Mountains, Santa Fe is America's oldest capital city and claims a long history with a rich cultural heritage. Santa Fe, known as the "Town of the Holy Faith," is a city whose beautiful adobe architecture blends with the high desert landscape. From awe inspiring vistas of mountains, canyons, and gorges to world-class hotels, museums, and restaurants, this is one of America's great art and culinary capitals. As home to America's third largest art market, the Santa Fe Opera, world-class dining, hundreds of quaint shops, and unlimited outdoor activities, Santa Fe is the perfect choice for any vacationer.

Off the Slopes

Dining in Santa Fe is sure to warm your soul. The linger of chile on your tongue, the hint of history, and a concoction of traditions created by people whose roots in New Mexico date back to the sixteenth century, creates an atmosphere unlike any other. New Mexico truly is "The Land of Enchantment." Excellent international cusine from American to Japanese is available. Quench your thirst at one of the local brew pubs or delight in a specialty coffee at the local coffee houses and bistros.

Known as America's favorite rejuvenation destination, Santa Fe lodging is a surefire remedy for today's stressful lifestyle. Lodging and accomodations choices include hotels, motels, lodges, and bed and breakfast inns. Adobe walls, patios bathed in golden southwestern sunlight, and colorful floral landscapes conjure a warm invitation to comfort and peace at the end of a day of adventure.
