Santa Fe ski area (as well as Taos) is one of my favorite ski resorts in the world. Although it's not the biggest, it has a great mixture of runs for experts as well as beginners, and what always impresses me is that for such a small ski area, how organized and efficient everything is and how warm and friendly everyone is. Also, the best part of this ski area is that at the end of the day, you have the beautiful town of Santa Fe to enjoy and the access to all the conveniences of staying in a city.
Not a snow bunny? August thru October affords recreational hikers and photographer’s ample opportunity to summit.
