Ski Experience - Ski Santa Fe

Just 16 miles north of the city, Ski Santa Fe and nearby Sipapu offer 230 inches of marvelous deep New Mexico powder for the enjoyment of skiers of all ages and skill levels.

Ski Levels

The expert level runs at Ski Santa Fe will prove to be a serious challenge to anyone's skiing skills. Cornice, Big Rocks, Tequila Sunrise, Columbine, Easter Bowl, and Wizard will prove to yourself whether you truly are an expert skiier or need a lot more practice. Intermediates will find they've got their hands full on Middle and Lower Broadway, Parachute, and the unfortunately named, Gayway. Neophytes will find the wide easy slopes of Easy Street to their liking, and after a bit of skill honing, might want to graduate up to Open Slope, Upper and Lower Midland, or Lower Burro. The kids will have a ball at the Chipmunk Corner learning area. There are no terrain parks, but with Ski Santa Fe 's wide range of magnificent natural terrain, you'll likely never miss it. Ski Santa Fe has a phenomenal Ski School, featuring lessons for all experience levels from one hour to full day, plus mogul clinics, powder workshops, telemark lessons, and even special classes for skiers over 50.

Après Ski

The biggest dining attraction in the Santa Fe area is clearly La Cantina, where you will savor delicious New Mexican specialties that are delivered by singing servers. You can enjoy a complete and entertaining dinner theater show, right between serving the courses. Not only is this a very unique experience but the whole package costs around twenty dollars. That has to be one of the great deals in New Mexico and possibly the country. Make reservations well in advance as the restaurant is justifiably popular. If you're seeking a more classical and cultural form of dinner theatre, head for the Flamenco dinner shows at Los Mayas where you will be entertained by the incredible footwork of dancers directly from Spain. Santa Fe is a diner's paradise with over 200 unique and memorable restaurants to savor. Closer to the slopes, La Casa Cafeteria serves up a delicious pasta bar where you can stock up on carbs for the activities ahead, and is everybody's choice for a filling breakfast. You can also enjoy burgers on the deck of Totemoff's Grill.

You have to take time off the slopes to go and explore any or all of the eight Native American villages close to Santa Fe. Each one is very different and you will be astounded at the type of lives that the original inhabitants of this area lived when it was a colony of Spain and even before. Mom will be more than happy to let hubby and the kids go exploring while she gets pampered at one of Santa Fe's world-famous spas, like The Sterling Institute, RockResorts Spa, SpaTerre, Santa Fe Massage, Ten Thousand Waves, and High Desert Healthcare.
