No matter what size the mountain, people can lose track – of their family, their friends, and even themselves.

[R367R, Ski Apache] has taken a step toward eliminating the stress of worrying about where anyone is by making GPS (Global Positioning System) tracking tags to anyone who visits the southern New Mexico resort.

For $12 a day, skiers and snowboarders can keep track of themselves and their companions no matter where they are on the 750 acres at Ski Apache – from Apache Bowl to Moonshine Gulch and everywhere in between.

In addition, the Flaik GPS tracking device records what lifts they ride, which runs they hit, and how many vertical feet they skied or rode. To access this information, guests must register with Flaik by clicking here.

The GPS device can be rented at the Ski Apache Snow Sports Learning Center, located in the base area.

Sitting above Ruidoso, N.M., Ski Apache opened on Thanksgiving Day, thanks to several storms that track across the southern tier of Arizona and New Mexico. Lift tickets cost $54 a day for adults, $47 for seniors 60 and older, $43 for active military personnel, $45 for teens ages 13-17 and $34 for children under 13.

The area boasts the only gondola in New Mexico, along with 10 chairlifts that serve some 55 trails spread over three ridges and two bowls below 11,500-foot Sierra Blanca. Operated by the Mescalero Apache tribe, the resort features the four-diamond Inn of the Mountain Gods hotel and casino.
