Full review

needs a little more snow. even some of the main runs have dirt/rocks peeking through. we accidently made the trip from Abq last Saturday when they were having a costume, snow castle event, so it was pretty crowded (usually i head to Sipapu to avoid crowds). it warms up by about 2, and the snow starts melting on the bottom half of the mt. then starts to ice over closer to 4. also, this isn't the first time we have been to Sipapu and wondered where exactly they get thier base measurements from...they def pad the numbers. they added an outdoor grill and small bar with some microbrews on tap. but watch out, i paid waaaay more for an adult beverage there than Santa Fe charges ($9 at Sipapu vs 6 at Santa Fe for the same drink). not much seating either. we go for the military lift tickets, but otherwise, $48 is kinda steep for this size mt
