Ski & Snowboard the Sandia Peak This Winter
Are you ready to go skiing? How about snowboarding? People tend to think that just because they’re in New Mexico everything will be hot all the time—that snow isn’t something they’re going to see. But contrary to that belief is the exciting ride down the mountain you can get in full gear and snow flying everywhere!
Sandia Peak reaches high into the mountains—over 10,000 feet, in fact. This means it’s nice and cold up at the top and snow isn’t unheard of at all. Sandia Peak is the go-to place for people looking to get in some skiing and snowboarding each and every winter. Lifts can take you up to the top of the runs and you can get your rush in as you soar down them. Several feet of snow can fall upon the mountain, making it the perfect spot to ski all day and then enjoy a hot cup of cocoa later on. The grooming crew makes sure that the runs are just as they need to be, so you can experience zooming down or perhaps something a little more challenging. There are dozens of routes you can take, so examine the map and find out which lift will take you to the place you want to go.
If you don’t know how to ski or snowboard, don’t worry. There are always lessons offered that can help you find your snow legs in no time. There are multi-day programs, as well as programs for children, that way the entire family can enjoy the snow.
