Full review

I had a blast at Sipapu. Took advantage of the 'free room with lift ticket' deal and knew it would be a bargain basement place to sleep. If your into skiing on a budget and do not mind a somewhat funky setting then you will enjoy Sipapu. The snow was good that day, but like all New Mexico ski areas one day can be great and terrible the next. I enjoyed the somewhat groomed and non-groomed runs and found several challenging for all the pushed up snow on them. The runs are very short, but you get a lot of them in and I was worn out by the end of the day.

Overall, Sipapu is great if your not one to be pampered and just want to ski something different not spending a fortune.
