Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort Lodging

Sipapu Ski amp Summer Resort Lodging

Located 20 miles southeast of Taos, New Mexico’s Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort is northern New Mexico’s most family-friendly ski and summer resort. It was founded in 1952 and is a family-owned, family-operated resort with the most affordable lift tickets in the area.

Guests appreciate the quintessential mountain life found only at Sipapu: a fun, friendly mountain (where your kids won’t get lost, perfect for skiers and boarders of all skill levels); clean, simple accommodations (no in-room TVs or phones – we believe families should connect with each other, not over their electronics); and the best deals around (including FREE lift tickets, lodging, lessons and more), which allows everyone to have the family vacation they want at prices they can easily afford.

Lodging Options

Stay in one of the 273 vacation rentals in Sipapu Ski Area, from luxury condos to historic artist homes, that offer the comforts of home in a stunning setting. Vrbo has vacation homes with pools and fireplaces, as well as cottages that are ideal for smaller groups and family reunions.

The slopes are just a short drive away from many of the vacation rental properties in Sipapu Ski Area, making it easy to explore the mountain and enjoy some great outdoor activities in the summer. Other activities in the surrounding areas include sledding, tubing, and cross-country skiing.

Slopes are quiet and uncrowded most of the time, with very rare lift queues.

You’ll find plenty of cruising runs and long, groomed trails that are suitable for intermediates. There are also some terrain parks, a snow park, and some steep, tree-skiing runs for more advanced skiers and snowboarders.

It’s possible to book the slopes, ski rentals, and ski school online in advance. You can also purchase a reusable card called the “Sipapu Card” which you can use for both your ticket and rental purchases during your stay.

If you’re a beginner, take advantage of the ski and snowboard lessons offered by the resort’s ski school. They’ll give you the skills you need to enjoy the mountain with confidence and have a fun, safe time on the slopes.

For those looking for more advanced instruction, the ski and snowboard school offers private and group lessons in both English and Spanish. Whether you’re just starting out or want to improve your technique, the ski and snowboard school at Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort will help you get ready for your next big mountain adventure.

The hotel is also convenient to other local attractions, including Carson National Forest. Those traveling by car will appreciate the free parking provided.
