This was our first time in Sipapu, instead of a run of the mill hotel we wanted to stay in the middle of nowhere. To begin, yes, this hotel is in the middle of nowhere. It is nice,quaint, full of nature but also other things that come with nature such as some convenience missing. While nothing is wrong with hotel...

We found this place on the map as we planned our ski trip to Taos and decided to give it a try and were pleasantly suprised. The service was local and friendly and probably not so uptight as at Taos Mountain and other more expensive places such as those, but we tend to avoid the more uppity entitled-type folks like...

What a beautiful place! We stayed in apartment 9b. We knew it wasn't going to be luxury based on the reviews; no hair dryer, no daily maid service, no pool etc. and we were TOTALLY fine with that. We went there specifically to fish for trout. They have a stocked trout pond, but we ended up having more success in...

We were there with a group of 12 guys doing climbing, backpacking & rafting. Our room had 2 double bunks and one queen bed for 6 guys. It was ok. No AC, one small bath with shower. We spent most of our time outside, so the room was adequate for what we needed. I don't know what it cost since...

This is a beautiful spot in the Carson national Forest. We rode by during a motorcycle tour of Northern New Mexico. It was slightly early for the summer season, but he staff was friendly and accommodating. We were able to have a fire by the river in one of several rustic firepits on the property. We were intrigued to watch...

We just returned from a 4 day skiing vacation 3/15 - 3/19/2016 Love this place! We stayed in a house in Taos using flipkey, as there were 9 family members total. The drive was short from town and the resort is awesome! Very laid back and family friendly. No long lines, parking very close and lots of runs. The tickets...

We stayed here for 3 nights in early March. There are pros and cons. We stayed in the large duplex which is the closest to the lifts. There was a large living room with new furniture and a big fireplace. The beds were comfortable. These were the saving graces. The bathroom sink was broken for most of the stay. The...

Let me start by saying the people that work at this place are AMAZING!! Some of the nicest people you will probably ever meet. Here is the problem... the mountain is steep the greens and like Angel Fire's blues. The lifts are EXTREMELY steep and it takes about 3 minutes to reach the top... and about 3 minutes to come...

Enjoyed my first ever ski experience. Ignacio, our instructor was great! My daughter took a bad fall though and we decided not to ski the second day. The staff was very nice and refunded me for the equipment rental I had already paid for the 2nd day. Michael, who helped me with my reservation and with questions about the resort,...

My family started coming here in 2010 because it was so inexpensive and a great place if you have little kids or inexperienced riders. We fell in love and try to make it back every year. The kids loved the ice castle they had one year and my then two year old learned to snowboard there. It is not over...
