We really enjoyed skiing Sipapu! It is a great family friendly resort. Every staff member we encountered was exceedingly friendly and helpful. All in all there was just a great, laid back, happy vibe. I liked that we could bring our own cooler for lunch. We also tried the restaurant and it was great. Also the latte made with Starbucks...

We found Sipapu in January of 2011 after my wife's unexpected emergency cancer surgery. Since then we have been back for 6 trips. GR8 lodging in a quiet setting on the mountain. Staff makes you feel like part of the family. We LOVE Sip!! Unbelievable grooming by JP and staff. come n see!!

We had a great time at a really great price! It was a very family friendly little place. Not big and fussy but nice. I got personal service from the family that owns the place, even met the dog! My daughter took one lesson and ski like a champ the rest of the time, she loved it. We will be... More

Having lived in New Mexico 10+ yrs now, and hearing about Sipapu, My partner and I decided to give it a try. We booked 1 night, last minute, and fortunately they had vacancy at the "hotel" building.

STAFF bad attitudes last Saturday almost ruined our day. After driving all the way from Socorro and in line with paperwork filled out before 9 AM was told that we were too late for the morning lesson and the children could have their lesson at 1PM. I even repeated that back to the guy at the counter and he said... More

My husband brought me to "learn" to ski. We skied for 3 days, and I had a lesson all three days. Everyone was so nice to me. I was such a baby, but my ski instructors took me by the hand and got me through all my fears. (Well, except running into trees and/or landing in the creek nearby.) I... More

Our family stayed in apartment 9. There was more than enough room for the seven of us. We where supplied with all the towels, wash clothes, hand towels, and blankets we needed.

First off, If your looking for a first class five star ski resort go ahead and look elswhere. Sipapu is one of only a few ski resorts in New Mexico to offer slopeside lodging and it will NOT bust your wallet like the others. As for the resort itself, Sipapu is NOT five star like I said, there are several... More

Not a fancy place, but price makes up for it. Played disk golf and loved it, locals took me under their wing to show me how. Great walking trails before the winter hits. We stopped here on our way to Utah and enjoyed the highway views getting there. Great place for a group of friends to hang at a price... More

Family friendly and budget conscious get-away from the Summer heat. Don't expect too much, except reasonable rates and out of the way location, and you'll be OK. Not fancy in any way and nothing at all close by. Main attraction is the beautiful Carson National Forest which surrounds the area. Many little communities within driving distance and Taos is about... More
