Our group was 5, I was the picture taker and my friends learned to Snow Board and Ski. It is not to say I did not enjoy myself. I snow shoe up and around the slopes. Our day was fun, they had their classes for both skiing and snowboarding and the instructors were great very patient with all of the ladies and by the end of the day all of them were on the chair lefts coming down the mountain as if they were on boards or skies for years. A great place to learn and have fun. Ski Santa Fe, is only 15 miles from the city of Santa Fe, NM and takes about 40 minutes to get to the slopes. The roads are very windy and only 2 lanes and if snows it can be very slick, so caution is advised. As for spending a day at Ski Santa Fe do it. One other thing they take mask wearing very seriously, so please wear yours. They do have a cafe one can rest and eat at. And as for parking come early the spots fill up fast. Enjoy, your ski day.

This mountain was perfect in January! The way up, though, was a little bit of a nightmare for me - I’m highly afraid of heights! There were twist and turns all the way up for 30 minutes and the drive down was even scarier. Recommend 4-wheel drive and not to go over the 25 mile speed limit - let people pass you ha!

The kid program was great and the staff were super nice. My child wished they had more toys though.

Skiing was great! Loved the little restaurant up on the mountain and stopped for some $5 nachos and a beer with hubs for a quick date.

Overall, a great escape!

(Stop at the ski shop about halfway up for a $5 parking fee and sled with the kiddos.)

First time skier! Ski Santa Fe offers group or private lessons, and I spent the day with my instructor (Shane) and a small group. Shane was patient and got us on our skis quickly. By the end of the day, I was flying down the green hill.

Ski Santa Fe provides lots of lunch options in their cafeteria. Prices are a bit expensive, but the food satisfies and tastes great!

Parking is just down the hill a bit. Brings layers for varying mountain temps. Also bring cash for locker tokens. And if you want to drink, BYOB in a cooler in your car.

We will definitely return.

I was in the midst of pulling together my winter ski plans at SSF in September when my dad lost his home to Hurricane Ian. 4 feet of water throughout, and I jumped to help him with FEMA and insurance paperwork since he had no internet, sketchy phone, and no electricity. Fast forward half a week and I contacted SSF to ask if they could cut me just a little slack on five passes I was about to buy the week before and extend that pricing ONE business day rather than hit me with an extra $150 cost. Sent them the waterline photos and the insurance paperwork from the house that I had been busy with instead of focusing on my recreation. Nope!!! Apparently they use computers and because of computers they, unlike so many decent and caring businesses when crises hit, cannot do ANYTHING. So I have my lodging that was booked and paid in September, and now they'll get $150 extra for me having jumped onto the FEMA queue for my dad instead of booking my skiing. Prices go up again in two days so despite my asking multiple times this month, asking them to have some higher-ups consider the decision, time's up. I guess my $150 is a big win for them.

Ski Santa Fe was so easy and so much fun! Great place to take the family. Day trips only. And I do recommend only driving a 4wheel drive since there are lots of shadows on the road that keeps the ice from melting.
7 lifts and all open at MLK weekend. I plan to retune every year now!

We drove from Santa Fe, we were lucky it has snowed earlier in the week and the lower but not upper part of the mountain was open.
My kids went to the school and they had fun, their instructors were nice but the check in process was atrocious. Unlike other places that everything can be done online, most things were required to do in paper (not easy to do while waiting outside while it was 15 degrees). The worst is that we had to repeat the process the following day… 🤦🏽
The rentals were fine, still a long line but we took them back to the hotel to avoid the line the following day.
The ski lifts were sometimes busy, maybe a little slow. I got the impression that signals were lacking, many first time skiers didn’t know where to go….
The slopes were pretty clean and the overall atmosphere was nice.
Probably will not go back…

Fresh snow, first lift up (almost), I got lucky. I skied from one side of the mountain to he other and hit every blue run and a couple blacks multiple times. I only had on day in town so I just stuck with the fun runs, repeatedly. It was a blast. The quad lift is super slow but others are zippy.

Good customer service, great skiing, appreciate the layout of the trails and lifts. Had an area for kids to learn beginner ski skills or just play, I went one week with kids and one without. The little lodge halfway down was always a fun stop. I liked having some healthy options available. All in all, favorite place to ski in New Mexico!

We love Ski Santa Fe for its charm and authenticity. While not as large or challenging as Taos, there are plenty of runs for all skiing ability and rarely have we waited in a lift line. Even over Christmas. As a lover of Taos Ski Valley, I had never really considered Ski Santa Fe seriously. I wish I had opened my mind and tried this hill sooner. I've skied on three continents and Ski Santa Fe holds its own for a day destination slope without lodging at the base. The 45-minute drive up from Santa Fe is easy and very scenic. The view of the desert valley and distant Jemez Mountains to the West is spectacular. My favorite thing about the on-mountain amenities is Totemoff's, the mid-mountain lodge. Go inside an order the tamales from the bar! You will not be disappointed. The best ski food ever! Or order any number of items from the outdoor grill including hot chocolate. Or opt for stronger drinks inside the bar. You won't find a terrain park like many of the larger resorts offer but boarders and skiers can find challenging terrain in many places at Ski Santa Fe. I highly recommend this mountain if you're visiting the area.

Back here for the first time in 15 years. Fantastic skiing conditions. Great adult beverages at Totemoffs. A bit chaotic and crowded on the Saturday of Presidents Day weekend. I'll be back.
