The southern-most ski resort in the US, Ski Apache rises over 12,000 ft above sea level and is owned by the Mescalero Apache Tribe. The mountain has a good mix of terrain but not the most challenging runs in the world, and snow tends to be among the best in the region. Be careful as the drive up to the resort can be super sketchy in bad weather.
