My husband & I cross country skied for the very first time for him & the first time in 30 years for me. The snow was amazing, weather not too cold with the sun peeping out every once in a while. The trails were well groomed & scenery beautiful. Great exercise as well as an added bonus. Everyone was very... More

Beautiful area to learn how to ski cross country. The folks doing the day to day operations were just lovely. The small group classes were just right for someone like me who has never been on skis before. Bob was our instructor, he was great, really took the time with us newbies.

Nice people running a small scale XC operation. I may be biased since I've mostly skied at Royal Gorge in CA for the last 25 yrs. The tracks were only fairly set but then the temperatures were rising so the snow was melting. Good selection of skis for rent at good prices for rentals and trail passes. My GF skied... More

The trails were fun for cross country skiing and the views were great. Staff was friendly and the rental skis were adequate. It's worth a visit if you are in the area or want a nice day trip from Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

My friend and I went for the Christmas night luminaria trail and stayed in the Little John yurt. It was amazing. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Snowshoeing through the luminarias at night in the snow was an magical as I'd heard it could be. The yurt was great too. Toasty warm with everything we needed. This is... More

The trails were well marked and the equipment was very good. The scenery was also great. Remember it's high elevation, so you'll need to adjust to the lower oxygen at first.

This hike started around 6:30 pm. My five year old daughter and I,along with 4 other family members absolutely loved this tour! There are really no words to justify how beautiful, amazing, and exhilarating this hike was. It would have been amazing in and of itself, and then they topped it off with a wonderful dinner! It was a great... More

Oh, this would definitely be a higher rating if only there was better snow cover. Beautiful surroundings, spectacular view of Wheeler Peak, but when we skied there less than half of the trails were skiable, despite being open. The yurts were great to warm up in that were cozy and welcoming. We will be coming back when the snow flies.

We came from ABQ to snowshoe and were not disappointed. Extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to make sure we knew where to go, which paths to take etc. It is extremely well signposted and maintained and despite very little snowfall in the past month they had made the very best of things and it was a...

What an awesome snowshoe trail. Gorgeous scenery, lots of wildlife and various animal tracks everywhere! The warming Yurt was so incredible and relaxing after a long trek. The sofas and wood buring fireplace was an added bonus. Everyone of every age should experience this if physically able. It did not disappoint and neither did the wonderful staff and their canine...
