Extremely old lifts, cannot handle crowds, ticket lines were long and slow

Full review

My last experience wasn't too good. My family and I waited in the lift ticket line for at least an hour. The antiquated lifts cannot handle the amount of people that were visiting that day. Lift lines were extremely long and the lifts were just too slow to keep up. The best thing was the snow was great. The parking lot needs to be maintained better. By the end of the day it was very icy. I was walking back to my truck and slipped and fell on the ice. I have a severely bruised knee and have been on crutches since. Luckily X-rays showed no broken bones. I recommend they salt down the parking lot during the day. Skiers beware. I plan on going to Santa Fe from now on. It is just a better experience there all around.
