  • This is a must visit! Unbeatable price. The slope is great for a beginner, as well as for an expert - it is like a buffet of trails, they got everything, and yes it's challenging! Can spend entire season and not get bored. Accommodations are nice, no red tape, and very roomy, clean and cozy. This is the place for a family, as well as for a group of friends, or an individual.
  • Really like this ski hill. It's a smaller, local hill with good prices and logging. The people who maintain the hill in the winter do a great job. I think they have the best man made snow for the ski hills in new Mexico. Definitely, small and not super steep.
