Sandia Peak is a small, beginner oriented ski resort located in Albuquerque, NM's. The mountain is the city's local peak that borders the east side of town. Snow conditions are unpredictable given how far south in the state & there have been some lean years of late. If you're looking for a good place for your kids to learn how to ski that's easily accessible, then Sandia is a great place. Access via the tram from town is a definite highlight as it dumps you at the top of the mountain with incredible views & immediate skiing since you can buy lift tickets with yoru tram pass.
Definitely not a destination resort for the hard core as the terrain is mostly beginner & intermediate. If you want to tear it up skiing in NM, you need to hit Taos or go into SW Colorado (i.e.-Durango, Wolf Creek, Telluride).
