The best location we have in Ohio, where I live, is called Boston Mills. (BMBW.com) It is approximately 10% of the size of Ski Apache, so I was more than excited to be visiting a serious ski resort. While researching this resort on the web, all you find is great pictures and a trail map that is very promising. My... More

I went to Ski Apache for the first and last time today. Luckily for me I just had to drive 1.5 hrs to get there so I didn't lose more than $80 to this failure of a ski resort. When we arrived it turned out only the bunny slope and the smallest run were open. We didn't expect much from... More

We went here during our Spring Break this past March. We did the snowboarding lessons for beginners, but that's as far as we made it on a snowboard sadly! Although, we did go all the way to the top of the mountain and spent about 3-4 hours just having a blast up there. We even met a family and built... More

Great places for skiing, been going here for years! Get there kind of early because it gets pretty crowed, also he traffic on the road leading to ski apache is pretty small so make sure you pay attention.

This is one my favorite places to Ski. I love riding the gondala all the way to the top. The views are spectacular! The ski trails are easy to follow. I only do Greens and Blues, so I'm able to ski all the way down with no problems.

we have gone over the years, the resort isn't bad for the money. I wish they would work on their customer service throughout the resort. It's on an Indian reservation and the employees aren't very nice, especially on the trails. We continue to go because of the convenience, but that's pretty much why. Evrywhere else we have to fly to.... More

Road driving there a little scary, especially if afraid of heights, but well worth the trip. Magnificent views.

Clean Fun, Great Views and best of all: skiing is great and other extras, such as hiking the mountain is exceptional. Great winter fun for all. If renting skis, it will cost, but to drive up the mountain and ski for yourself ot take a trail - it is Free. Enjoy all the area has to offer.

The scenery was spectacular. The drive up to the mountain was breathtaking. I wish the gondalas had been working during the week because we wanted to get to the summit but it was too far to hike to.

I've been going to Ruidoso several years now but this was the first time I have driven up to Ski Apache. I don't know why I haven't gone before! The drive is amazing. The switchbacks, drop offs and the view. When you get to the top, there are walking paths if you want to hike the mountain. They also let... More
