Ski Free at Sipapu Resort New Mexico – snowboarders too!

Sipapu Ski Resort is giving free lift tickets to all skiers and snowboarders for the New Mexico ski resort’s two closing weekends.

OK, snow bunnies! The family-friendly Sipapu Ski Resort has announced that it’s free for everyone to ski at Sipapu on their closing weekends for this ski season:

—  Saturday and Sunday April 5 – 6, 2014

—  Saturday and Sunday April 12 – 13, 2014

They just had a nice dump of snow up at Sipapu and according to a press release, up to 12 runs will be open this weekend. That includes four beginner trails, seven intermediate trails and one advanced run. Sipapu’s largest terrain park, Don Diego, is also scheduled to be open.

Lift #1 will be running, which serves mountain terrain from top to bottom as well as Lift #2 for the practice slope. The resort’s full-service rental shop will be open if you don’t have your own gear.

Apparently this ski and snowboard season has been one of the most successful on record, so as a closing celebration they’re sharing the lurve with the ski freebie!

Lifts will be open from 9:30 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday April 5-6 and April 12-13. Sipapu is only open for these two weekends for the rest of this season, not on weekdays.

To check the latest on weather and conditions, see Sipapu Ski Resort’s website at this link before heading off for their last ski and snowboarding weekend of the season – totally free.

Sipapu is about a 2.5 hour drive from Albuquerque via Santa Fe, 20 miles southeast of Taos.

Sipapu Ski Resort is giving free lift tickets to all skiers and snowboarders this weekend as part of the New Mexico ski resort’s closing weekend.

OK, snow bunnies! The family-friendly Sipapu Ski Resort has just announced that it’s free for everyone to ski at Sipapu this Saturday and Sunday April 13-14, 2013. They reckon they are the only New Mexico ski area open this weekend. Although I haven’t fact-checked that, I’m pretty sure all the other NM ski resorts I know have indeed closed for this season already. Apparently this has been Sipapu’s biggest season ever, with an estimated 10% more visitors than last year.  As a closing celebration they’re sharing the lurve with the ski freebie!

According to a press release, Lift #1 will be running, which serves mountain terrain from top to bottom. The resort anticipates that at least seven trails will be open, including two beginner routes, two intermediate trails and three advanced trails. The resort’s full-service rental shop will be open if you don’t have your own gear. Lifts will be open from 9:30 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

This all depends of course on the weather playing nicely and general conditions. So check Sipapu Ski Resort’s website at this link before heading off for the last ski and snowboarding weekend of the season in New Mexico – totally free.

Sipapu is about a 2.5 hour drive from Albuquerque via Santa Fe, 20 miles southeast of Taos.
