Full review

I am very impressed with this resort and i've been here three times in the past five years. Standout runs are Muerte and Gayway. Muerte is a steep, fast black on the lower mountain that does not get too much traffic and has a real black feel to it. Gayway is one of the widest, most interesting runs I have been on. Somewhat comparable to Mozart at Keystone. Only real complaint is the number of boarders, but you have to deal with that at almost all places. It is one of the least expensive places to ski because skiing is off season in Santa fe and some good deals can be found.
