Spring Break in Santa Fe – Michael’s Blog

Tonight, the forecast is for 18″ of new snow at the Santa Fe Ski Basin.  We’ve had a fantastic winter so far and this new snow is just in time for Spring Break.  Skiers know that Santa Fe is always listed in the top 5 Destination points in the country.

  The Mountain

The 12,075-foot summit at Ski Santa Fe – part of the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountain range – boasts 1,725 vertical feet of skiing and 69 runs winding through some of the most stunning terrain in the country. Seven lifts transport 9,350 skiers per hour high over giant pines and the beckoning, perfect powder typical of New Mexico.


The grooming crew is one of the best in the southwest and the groomed runs are always in splendid shape. A caring, expert snow-grooming staff keeps an average of 225 inches of snowfall per season in pristine condition. Their genuine concern about the mountain, the snow and the slopes is evident to skiers enjoying the area’s 660 acres of challenging winter amusement.


Say goodbye to lift lines at Ski Santa Fe. There are seven lifts with the addition of a New Millenium Triple Chair !!! With seven lifts (capacity 9,350 skiers per hour) lift lines are practically non-existent at Ski Santa Fe.

It’s not too late to make your plans for the trip.  Call me and I’ll help you get started.

Michael’s Bit of Real Estate:

As you know, each month I send the Santa Fe real estate market information in a spreadsheet. It shows the length of time it would take to sell the current inventory of homes listed for sale. And there has been little fluctuation in those numbers for at least a year.  Buyers are still hesitant and sales are fairly light relative to the current inventory.  What about the total dollar volume of residential sales in our market area’s MLS for the first two months of 2009? That comes to the nice round number of $71,125,278. (*Figures taken from the Santa Fe Association of Realtors, Multiple Listing Service-includes residential land and homes). 181 sales make up that total.  Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns or if I can help in any way.  Here’s the link to the Santa Fe Ski Basin Snow Report.
