Sipapu’s lodging continues to operate at 25% capacity, and our convenience store and gas station remain open as essential businesses with reduced capacity.

Sipapu has postponed its opening day until the Governor’s office authorizes our reopening. We understand this is disappointing news. We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and grace as we navigate the ...

November 20 Opening Day!

COVID Expectations for Sipapu this Winter We’re getting the snowguns placed around the mountain and are hoping to start snowmaking when the temps drop next week. Soon our mountain will be blanketed with white. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to enjoy it.

Which Pass Should I Choose?

Clean Up Days on the Mountain

 

Under more normal circumstances, we’d host a clean up day on the mountain where boy scouts and our community join us in cleaning up the mountain after the snow melts (hello, glove you lost in December!). This year looks a little different, but we still would love your help in cleaning up on the hill. For your troubles, we’ll give you a FREE frisbee or koozie. Bring the bag of refuse you cleaned from the mountain to the reservations desk between 9 am and 3 pm and we’ll reward you! 

Developing Power Kids that Love to Ski

That’s why we offer a FREE season pass for children ages 10 and under, so that it’s more affordable and accessible for them to get on the slopes. We also make it a priority to have a lot of options for parents when it comes to season passes, to make it affordable and accessible for you, too. We have options starting at just $199 for our adult Value pass, it ...
