BEAUTIFUL ski & snowboarding paradise. If you hit the mountain within a couple days of the snow storm, you will experience a gorgeous mountain with fluffy pow. The gondola takes you from the bottom to the top in about 10-15 minutes. Wonderful staff who are very welcoming and hospitable. Ski Apache is a great weekend retreat for a small price.
Closest to home. Very friendly and curteous staff. Slopes for all ski levels. Great lift capacity.
I selected Ski Apache due to the fact that it is located nearby. I like what it has to offer for all ages. I like the shopping in Ruidosa and all lodging accomodations that it has.
It is a great town and not a total tourist town like many in Colorado. More locals than tourist.
SkiApache is not for everyone. It's small and the conditions can be hit or miss but most of the time, it is not crowded and you can ski to your heart's content. Unfortunately, no ski-in ski-out. You will have to stay in town and drive to the mountain. But it's very reasonably priced.
I just think it's exellent it has everything you need I wanted to stay longer.
Santa Fe is the next resort that I would have chosen for the same reasons as Ski Apache but not listed.
I go to this resort (Ski Apache) because we have a home in the mountains in Ruidoso, NM. We live in Southern CA, so we usually go to Bear Mountain, Snow Valley, or Mountain High for day trips. We went to Mammoth Mountain this past January and the snow was awesome. We went to Whistler/Blackcomb last summer and enjoyed the mountain biking. As a resort, Whistler is fun. None of these resorts are convenient for driving or flying into.
I live in Houston Texas and this is the closest mountain to us. I love skiing here the people are wonderful and the skiing is always terrific.
close by and has good snow, great shopping and casinos, a little bit of everything.
