Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We were here the week before thanksgiving. We did not stay on the property, but found a great house to rent 15 miles or so away.

The lift tickets were very affordable, and we intended to ski for two days. A snow storm put us there too late for morning lessons, but that turned out to save us a ton of money! We were helped by a very friendly lady who got us all set up. The staff fitting our boots and blades were great, too. Because we missed the lesson, we decided to try to teach ourselves to ski (two adults and our 15, 12, and 11 year old children) and decide later on taking a lesson. The unfortunate thing about coming so early is that they only had one very small "hill" (not steep at all) open. Even with no experience, we were skiing it with no problem right off the bat. So glad we didn't pay for lessons!! Would love to go back now, as I know they have other actual slopes for beginners open. Since the baby bunny hill was all that was open, we decided to not go back a second day. I might be able to rate this even higher if more had been open when we went. That first baby hill isn't much fun if you are over 8 years old...

This place was the worst first off they have nothing in the rooms no tv no internet no way to prepare your food. They won't let you bring your own food or beer in the lodge they try to force you to by theirs and its over price jail food super gross. Everyone looks and acts like they just did a hit of crack. Theirs nothing to do when the slopes close at 4 except sit in your room and stare at thier dumpy walls. VERY VERY Disapointed and will never go back. :(

While staying in Santa Fe before thanksgiving we discovered there was a ski resort already in play! Only some of the routes where open but it had a great service, and really friendly staff! We enjoyed our day very very much and it was one of the cheapest ski resorts I've ever encountered so that was good too ;)

They have great ski packages and the mountain is beautiful, but there are only 42 trails so if you are staying multiple days you might get a little burnt out. The lodging is very affordable and the rooms are very clean, however the rooms are a little dated and have no tv's so you need to take something with you to do after the slopes close. I highly recommend this place if you're on a budget or if you just want to take a weekend trip.

We just got home from a weeks stay and loved the place!! We rented a suite one night and Cabin #2 for 6 nights. The suite was roomy and clean but the cabin was more to our liking because of the privacy, coziness, layout and proximity to the pond. We don't have kids so I can't give any feedback on that aspect but our dogs LOVED it!!!!!! The cabin just felt like it was "ours", you know? The staff was always courteous and helpful, too.

Beautiful country and a refreshing get away from our hot, Kansas summer!!!

The place was very dumpy, the lamps did not work, the screens fell out, the rooms were dirty,
they had a fun disc golf course the kids played but not much else to do.
I was on a family reunion. when I saw the place I swould have found someplace else to stay but there were 43 peoile there and no place else near to stay. It is out in no mans land.

We love Sipapu! Been there multiple times. It is small enough we don't have to worry about our 9 year ols son being safe on the mountain. The workers are nice, and the prices are affordable. The cabins are a basic....nothing fancy.
