Full review

If you're a skier & from Albuquerque, Santa Fe or Rio Rancho, this is probably the best "resort" in the area. Don't waste your time w/Sandia, or Ski Apache. This ski venue is much larger & expanded than Sandia & there are more lifts open, plus much more beginner friendly! However, I wouldn't go so far as to call this a "resort," the closest lodging is downtown Santa Fe. Also, while this resort has everything short of lodging, the eatery is more like a school cafeteria/snack-bar rather than restaurant. I'd say this is a great place if you're skiing on a budget. I also liked the customer service!
