Exhilarating Santa Fe Skiing Adventures
Ski Santa Fe, a favorite of the locals, is nestled high in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains, just 16 miles from the heart of historic Santa Fe, New Mexico. With a base area elevation of 10,350 feet, Ski Santa Fe is among the highest ski areas in the continental United States.
Their New Millennium Triple Chairlift will take snow sport enthusiasts to a new height of 12,075 feet and some of the Southwest's finest skiing. The vistas atop Ski Santa Fe are unsurpassed and act as the gateway for thrills including steep bump runs, powder filled chutes, gladed tree-skiing, and plenty of groomers. Local patrons and visitors from around the world can all find something for their taste, whether a first time skier/boarder or seasoned Santa Fe skiing veteran, we offer complete services for all levels of participants. Ski Santa Fe is family-oriented, but those seeking a challenge can find their place on our mountain. Come out and enjoy all-inclusive New Mexico skiing in Santa Fe.
Pajarito Mountain is another ski area situated on the east slopes of the Jemez Mountains above Los Alamos, NM, just 45 minutes from Santa Fe, and a 2 hour drive from Albuquerque. It has 40 trails on 300 skiable acres, 1200 ft vertical, 5 chair lifts and one surface lift. Open to the public - anyone can buy tickets or season passes - and with miles of groomed, lots of bumps, tree skiing, the new Crazy Mother terrain park, and no crowds and minimal lift lines, it is New Mexico's best kept skiing secret.
