Sipapu has been family-owned and operated since 1952, which helps explain the area's commitment to families. Everything seems designed to please a family and help protect the family budget, from lodging to terrain. There are 41 runs, a vertical drop of 1,055 feet, average snowfall of 190 inches, and a snowmaking system that covers 70 percent of Sipapu's 200 acres. There's plenty of diversity in the terrain. You'll find some of the best tree skiing in the state, a couple of terrain parks, some long cruising trails, and an abundance of novice and beginner terrain.
