We spent one amazing night before leaving the Taos area. It’s much quieter and absolutely beautiful up there. Walking or driving you will truly appreciate the large place to stay and very friendly people.

As a Texas resident who grew up in the northern U.S., I enjoy skiing. Over 12 years ago we discovered Sipapu, and we keep coming back. As I look at the Texas license plates on most of the cars in the Sipapu parking lot, there are many other Texans who make the trek to Sipapu. I appreciate the expansion of runs and the number of lifts over the years, and I most appreciate that the prices have stayed low. As I tell my friends, "Why would I go to Colorado and pay at least twice as much when I can go to Sipapu?" Upon skiing there again during spring break 2020, my daughter and I were impressed with the friendliness of lift workers - both at the bottom and top. This is such a great place to take a family, especially if you have family members at different skill levels. There are enough beginner, intermediate, and advanced runs to keep everyone happy.

I’ve been here several times. It is not fancy, but amazing for the price. If you are looking for fancy accommodations, look elsewhere. That said, this place is an awesome place to take your family. I drive down from Colorado to go here. I can take all of my kids and grandkids here for less than it would cost for just three of us in Colorado. Heads up, T-Mobile has no service, but Verizon has limited service. The WiFi did not work for us. We rented the Adobe house on our last visit, so a three bedroom cabin which accommodated twelve of us. Nothing fancy, no WiFi, mismatched dishes in the kitchen. But I was able to give my family a memory for $56/child and 68/adult - for both lift and rentals. The staff are amazing. The ambiance is great. The runs seem good to me (an intermediate skier at best). I highly recommend!

Almost never a line at the lifts and plenty of space when skiing. Everyone is very nice and not pretentious. This is a fmaily place. My 3 year old loved playing on the snow castle.

staying in the "hotel" ("motel" on the sign above the building) we have no TV, no WiFi. we have to plug the toilet everytime we flush (plunger included, gee thanks). sleeping with window open because you can't control the heater. so I asked politely 2 times if I could please leave a day early due to the fact I'm not happy. we are staying 3 days. paid in advance. I do understand that it says no refunds 15 days prior to arrival. the conditions are poor at best. again, I asked 2 twice about leaving 1 day early...all i was told was, "uh, no". I will never EVER visit this place again.
