Full review

People that say there are big lines on the weekends don't know the mountain or are beginners. With the addition of the Millenium lift I may have stood in line for five or six minutes ten times out of the 72 days that I skied Santa Fe during the 2009-2010 season. Yep there's long lines at the quad and Easy Street lifts on weekends, but if that's all your capable of, try riding the Millenium lift or the Triple. Ski Gayway or Sunset if you're a novice. You get 1200 verticle with these lifts instead of the 900 you get on the Quad. For experts, the 1200 verticle is prettty short. It's not Taos or Vail. With an 80 inch base, though, (Santa Fe topped out at 147" this season) there's trees and shoots that compete with anything in the world. Don't know where they are? Ask a passholder. We happpily show people around all the time. As for accomodations, there's nothing at the mountain, but the City of Santa Fe is world class for hotels and restaraunts. Those that say the foods bad, haven't tried the pasta bar or daily special at the main lodge. For seven or eight bucks, you can't beat it.
