I went sking for the first time in 16 years on the weekend of Jan.18th and took my two sons for their first time. I almost did'nt go because of the negative reveiws I had read on this site, but since our trip was already planned, we decided to give Ski Apache a try. Well, for all those who wrote bad reveiws, BITE ME! The sking was great, the snow, even though there was not alot, was well maintained and the people working the slopes were very friendly and helpful. Not once did I regret the 7 hour, one way, drive. My two sons, 15 and 13, and my nephew, also 15, had the time of their life and are already planning another trip. To the crew at Ski Apache, my hat is off to you. For those reading this review, although it had been 16 years since my last ski trip, I have skied New Mexico and Colorado many times and I would go back to Ski Apache, with present conditions, in a minute. It made these 4 Texas boys go home with a big smile.
