Snowmaking crews and snow guns are up and running.  They are working towards opening on Dec. 10th, however additional snowfall could result in an earlier opening.  With a significant storm, their grooming crews are geared to have the mountain ready within 48 hours. Ski Santa Fe is looking forward to seeing all of their guests on the mountain soon.  Think Snow!!
If you have not yet ordered your pass for this coming season, you can do so at Season Passes/Discount Cards.

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  at 505.470.4180 and I’ll help you get started.

Happy Thanksgiving!
