That’s the theme of this issue of Slopes! After all, winter adventures are all about spending quality time with friends and family. New Mexico’s ski resorts and towns have welcomed generations of groups, couples, families and extended families who come year after year. For some, it’s where they found true love; for others, it means gathering family near and far in one fun-filled location.
Your decision to bring the family to the “Land of Enchantment” will prove to be one of the best winter vacation choices of your life. The eight alpine and three Nordic ski areas dotted throughout the state will provide you with the ultimate in sporting options, outstanding scenery, unbelievable food, out-of-this-world shopping, and a never-to-be-forgotten cultural experience. And—oh yes—exceptional skiing and riding.
With over 300 inches of snow each winter and over 300 days of sunshine each year, winter sports in New Mexico include exceptional downhill skiing and riding, picturesque high-mountain Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, inner tube riding, and snowshoeing. In the New Mexico mountains there is fun for everyone.
Our state’s ski resorts offer families a unique, affordable vacation. Since most of our resorts are owned and operated by families, they understand what makes a family vacation particularly special. New Mexico prides itself on comfortable hospitality, from warm welcomes to a variety of lodging options geared toward families.
Easy to get to and easy to enjoy, New Mexico has incredible days of skiing and riding in store for the whole family. If this sounds too good to be true, I invite you to experience it for yourself.
