Don’t cry because we’re on the tail end of winter—Smile because we still have an entire month to get out there and make some snow tracks!
And thanks to Mother Nature’s perfectly-timed and generous storm cycle last week, there is plenty of snow on the mountains! Taos got more than 52 inches of fresh powder, neighboring Sipapu topped 36”, Red River recorded 32”, and Santa Fe saw 31”. For full details on all of New Mexico’s ski resorts, click in!
Get a move on while all of our resorts are open this weekend, and three of them are open into April:
Here in New Mexico, we know how to make the most of our seasonal events and activities. There is plenty of time to pack up your roof rack and head to some fun events:
Maybe the most fun a family can have together on a mountain is the Sipapu Cardboard Derby, back this year on Saturday, March 26, from 8 am-4 pm. Racers arrive with innovative vessels made with only cardboard, duct tape, string and paint and careen down the mountain for a chance to win amazing prizes. Need a little inspiration (or maybe just a laugh)? Check out this video!
Squeeze in one more cool kids event at RED RIVER on Wednesday, March 16th at 6:30 pm at the Kids Glow Stick Parade on Gold Rush Hill. Fuel up on free hot dogs at the Main Chalet before your little “hot dogs” hit the hill! Then stick around for fireworks, too. If your “little kids” are now “big kids” in college, check out the College Days savings between March 17-20 here. And for one last hurrah, send off the ski season at the annual Pond Skim on Sunday, March 20 at 3:30 pm.
Finally, it’s a good thing TAOS has so much snow and is open for so long, because they still have some major events to squeeze into the 2022 ski season! The Ben Myers Ridge-a-thon on March 18 & 19, the High Hazard Hoedown on March 19, and the USSA Southern Series Championships (March 26 & 27) are cool enough. But the event de résistance is the World Pro Ski Tour World Championships April 7-10. This prestigious event is the country’s foremost professional alpine race tour where athletes race side-by-side in a single-elimination format. Join Olympians Bode Miller, Deb Armstrong, and others to watch as the world’s top athletes go head-to-head in hopes of taking home a piece of the $200,000 purse. Thousands of spectators, competitors, and sponsors are expected to attend, showcasing Taos’ world-renowned terrain on international television. Get your tickets here.
As winter winds down, we hope you take the opportunity to visit a new venue, try a new trail or two, and make some fresh new winter memories with your friends and family.
