Overview

Ski Santa Fe is located high above what has become one of the top visitor destinations in the nation, the historic and artistic town of Santa Fe. The resort has a wonderful range of terrain for all levels. From isolated beginner slopes, groomed cruisers, long bump runs and tree skiing, there is something for everyone. For those that are more experienced, the out-of-bound Big Tesuque run is a powder hound's delight that ends on a luge-like forested trail leading to the access road. Take advantage of the 200 restaurants that offers every type of cuisine available.

There's no lodging on the mountain, but 15 miles away in town you have a fabulous selection of small and large hotels (many with spas), motels, inns, and B&Bs, as well as wonderful dining options.
