We are so excited to welcome you back to winter this Friday, November 19. For the 19th year in a row, Sipapu will be the first resort to open in New Mexico, and one of a handful open in the country.

Despite unusually warm temperatures, our team has been able to make enough snow and keep it in the shadows so we can get OPEN.

We’ll be running Lift #2, which is the bigger of our Magic Carpets – a whole 110′ of vertical feet! We’re challenging everyone who comes out to keep track of their laps and let us know if you hit 2021 feet. Give us a shout on social media with #sipapu21 and you’ll be entered to win SPY goggles. Contest Ends November 28 and winners will be announced on Instagram the following week. 

We’re hoping that cooler temps will allow us to get Lift 5, Jackalope, open for more advanced skiing — stay tuned for details. 

As our venerable General Manager John Paul explained, “We LOVE skiing. Winter is short in New Mexico and we are going to savor every drop of it. If we can fire our snow guns and get a taste of snow, we’re going to do it. If we can ski, we are going to ski.”

This winter at Sipapu, we’re all about getting more out of the season. We’re getting more winter, more fun, and more outside. Won’t you join us?
