Skiing Santa Fe in the Spring is a smart move and has the makings for a Fabulous Vacation. One would think that during Spring Break, it would be mobbed, but they would be wrong. The sun was shining and the snow was hanging on for a few more weeks of fun on the hill. No waiting in the lift lines and plenty of room to tear it up on the slopes. Adult Lift tickets are $29 for half day and $58 for full day. $22 rents your gear for the day. The days of cutie pie snow bunny are over as many of us have become sensible and wear helmets. They aren't great for the hairdo, but are so worth the safety they provide. Snowboarding has made helmets even more cool, so get one on your little noggin. It's the smart thing to do. You can rent them for $8, but I highly recommend purchasing your own. I'm a germ freak and I like knowing only my head has been in that helmet.

We utilized the Chipmunk Center for our 7 year old. He skied all day, had lunch, snack and made new friends all on a hill that was perfect for his ability. Cost of this was $98 and it gave us freedom to ski at our pace and feel great that he was taken care of and having fun.
Food at the resort is the typical fare and typical prices. Decent tasting and quick to get. Again no lines. Green chili cheeseburgers, chili dogs, pasta, etc are on the menu.
Ski Santa Fe is great for a family trip, new skiers and quick weekend getaways. With 7 lifts, the average 1x a year skier, will feel like they got there skiing fill and their money's worth. If you are looking for glamour, high tech and a huge mountain then head farther North to Colorado.
