Every year, a giant snow castle is built by the mountain team at Sipapu.  It’s a snow playground for all ages and the only one in New Mexico! Each year, the snow castle changes in design, but what remains constant is the sheer size, which is usually 2-3 stories tall, the unique creation of stairs, slides, flags, and plenty of places to play in the snow!  The building of the snow castle begins Saturday, Feb. 8 and lasts throughout the week until Feb. 14. The snow castle opens at 9 am on Saturday, Feb. 15 and is open for all to explore and enjoy.
