More Information

Remember the days when you could ski or snowboard without waiting in line for a lift and an entire family could hit the slopes without breaking the bank? Sipapu provides a classic ski experience reminiscent of the days of yore.

Just 20 miles southeast of Taos and two hours north of Albuquerque, this gem of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains offers uncrowded slopes, excellent trail grooming, the state’s longest season and a family-friendly, family-fun vibe that’s attracted generations since 1952.

Sipapu built its legacy on an unparalleled commitment to being the most family-friendly resort in the Rockies, which is why Sipapu offers the best deals around- not to mention the most affordable lift ticket prices in New Mexico. Plus, with its free lesson program for first-time skiers and snowboarders, Sipapu is one of the best places to learn to ski or ride.

Bargain hunters can always find ways to do something for free at Sipapu: Kids 6 and under, 4th graders, 5th graders, active duty military and guests ages 40, 60 and 70 or better ski free. Be sure to check out Car Load Days when everyone in one car skis for just $50, too. Sipapu also offers free lodging with an adult lift ticket purchase (and they've partnered with hotels in Taos, Las Vegas and Santa Fe to offer guests free lodging with lift ticket purchase, too), and first-timers receive free lessons everyday.

Sipapu is all about family, but don’t let that fool you: on Sipapu’s slopes, guests will discover incredible steeps, hidden powder stashes and some of the best tree skiing in the state.

With over 41 trails, five lifts, four terrain parks, slopeside lodging, a full-service ski school and rental shop, and riverside dining, Sipapu is the place for those looking to get away from everything but the snow.
