Terrain Parks - Sipapu


Rider's Guide

Sipapu gets 190 inches of snowfall annually, and with snowmaking over 70% of the mountain, there's no lack of powder. Although it's not the largest ski resort with 200 skiable acres and four quality lifts, it's still a great place to ski. A vertical drop of 1,055 feet and an almost 11,000-foot top slope, you can find skiing excitement even if you're an advanced skier. The season lasts from November to April and boasts the longest ski season in New Mexico. There are over 40 trails available to ski, in a range that's perfect for all classes of skier. The breakdown is 25 percent advanced trails with another 15 percent reserved for expert skiers. Most of the trails, a good 40 percent, are for intermediate skiers and about 20 percent of the trails are marked for beginners. Get your jib on without the big resort bling.

Parks and Pipes

The two terrain parks change each year with new features added throughout the season. The low-key attitude is perfect for beginners looking to build their skills, and the lack of crowds allows everyone to spend more time at the parks, not in line. Every season, the resort carefully plans and develops their parks to give guests an unforgettable experience. Plus, Sipapu ensures their playgrounds are ready both early and late in the season, so when other resorts are still working on their parks, you'll be hucking at Sipapu. Created for all skill levels, the features flow smoothly together also giving you room for creativity. Sipapu offers both straight and rainbow rails, A-frame boxes, and small and large bread boxes. Test your balancing skills the six-foot tall, 100-foot long teeter-totter. Get sweet airtime or work on your takeoffs and landings on our terrain park jumps. The mountain's unique terrain allows you catch air everywhere, not just in our terrain parks.

Out of Bounds

When you're ready to relax away from the slopes, you can enjoy a variety of shops and eateries in both Sipapu and nearby Taos. But you can stay and enjoy spa treatments at the resort, like facials, deep-tissue massage, mountain massage, salt scrubs, and reflexology treatments. As an added luxurious convenience, you can enjoy these right in your room, as the spa comes to you.

Hangout & Hookup

There's a café that is a great place for New Mexican dining, where you can enjoy dishes from porterhouse steaks to traditional New Mexican fare. There's also a lounge where you can tip a few liquors, beers, and several locally brewed beers on tap to stay warm. A great place where families gather après ski is in front of the fireplace in the main lodge.
