Santa Fe Area
What's in this Area?
Chute. The top is about 45 degrees steep or so and mellows to around 40 degrees. The descent skis you down to a beautiful alpine lake with gorgeous views to the east. There is some variability to the different lines so pick one that your comfortable with and go for it[more]
Plenty of good skiing around here. Most of the skiing is below treeline, but occasionally you can get up high and enjoy the views. The sun shines a lot down there, but if you look for snow on the north facing slopes, you generally will not be disappointed.
How to Get There
From Albuquerque, go North. There are some longer approaches, and some shorter approaches.
