Opening weekend was a great success! Thanks to everyone who came out for New Mexico’s opening weekend. We’re open daily for Thanksgiving Ski Week with lifts turning from 9am-4pm through the 25th!  

On Friday, we opened Lift 5 (Jackalope), the ski school area, and Lift 2 running with access to Thumper, an intermediate trail, and Lower Bambi, a beginner trail. We also had 4 terrain park features. Sierra Nevada Brewing came to celebrate opening day and handed out swag and served up samples! On Saturday, we opened the top to bottom skiing on Lift 1 with access to Sassafras and Butterfly.

Snow is in the forecast and our snowmaking crews are hard at work working on opening more terrain! Our mountain crew have been using snowcats to track pack all the natural snow on all beginner and intermediate terrain to hold the natural snow better.
