The 2018-19 New Mexico ski season is shaping up to be a memorable one. Between upgrades at the ski areas and the El Nino winter, visitors can expect extra snow, both natural and manmade. As an added bonus, we will see an extra method of travel to some of our favorite ski areas. While on the slopes, keep a lookout for neat new attractions. Pack your bags and bring your camera. You’ll want to remember this.
Angel Fire Resort
Angel Fire Resort management knows how much you love trails like Headin’ Home and Hallelujah, and they want you to be able to hit the slopes as long as possible. New snowmaking equipment at the resort will allow for more, efficient snowmaking, resulting in better coverages. The additional equipment will allow the resort to open more runs earlier in the season.
Red River Ski Area
You can expect more snow, smoother snow, and wider trails next time you visit Red River Ski Area. There are now 14 extra snow guns operating at increased efficiency, as well as a PistenBully Park Pro 400 groomer to make sure the snow is as good as possible. The team has also been busy with trail widening and grading projects across the mountain!
Mark your calendars for an unforgettable experience this spring. Sandia Peak Ski Area will be opening a brand-new mountain top restaurant. The venue is currently being built at the top of the peak. When opened, it can be accessed via Sandia Peak Tramway or by lifts 2 and 3. Stay tuned to see when you can enjoy amazing views and fine dining.
Taos Ski Valley
Taos Air just launched non-stop service from both Austin and Dallas to Taos, getting you to the Rockies in as little as two hours. Make your reservations now to fly privately for the price of a standard commercial airline ticket and spend more time doing what you came to do. During your time on the slopes, you will be able to enjoy the new high-speed quad lift at Lift 1 and ski over snow made from Taos Ski Valley’s new snow guns. Your little ones will be well taken care of at the Children’s Center which just received an $8-millon worth of improvements!
With so many new features being added each year, it’s easy to get excited for the upcoming ski season! Which upgrades are you most looking forward to? Comment below and let us know!
