What to Expect Opening Day
Scheduled November 18, 2022

New Mexico is open for skiing and snowboarding! Once again, Sipapu is the first ski resort to open in New Mexico. We’re so excited to welcome you back for our 70th season! 

We’re happy to announce Bambi, a beginner trail will be open, along with Lower Bambi, plus Thumper a blue trail.

Our team will continue to take advantage of colder temperatures to make snow and open more terrain throughout Thanksgiving week. For more information on current conditions, visit our Snow Report page.
