Sipapu Ski Resort offers a bunch of freebies and deals to lure skiers and snowboarders on to the slopes at the family-friendly resort during this January to April 2013 ski season.

For one, you can score free lodging at Sipapu, Taos, Santa Fe or Las Vegas in one of their most popular promotions. Buy two adult lift tickets at $44 each and get one night’s free lodging.  The options are at Sipapu’s own lodging just yards from the base of the lifts, or you can get a free room in Taos at the Sagebrush Inn, El Pueblo Lodge, Quality Inn, or Indian Hills Inn; in Santa Fe at the Santa Fe Sage Inn, or free lodging in Las Vegas, NM at the Super 8.  The offer runs throughout the season with some date restrictions depending on the free lodging location you choose, so check the offer details at the above link to find the best deal for your trip.

Other Sipapu special offers for skiers include:

Car Load Days Deal Everyone in one car skis for $50 on Wednesdays January 9, 16, 23, and 30, plus many (but not all) Wednesdays in February through April. You can pack up to 6 skiers in one vehicle and get this deal – that’s under 10 bucks per person. But you must mention the Car Load Days Deal when collecting your lift tickets.

Two for One Tuesdays  Buy a full price lift ticket and get one lift ticket free on Tuesdays.  This offer is scheduled for every Tuesday in January and February, and then selected dates in March, but check the dates at the above link in case they change.

On Parents Ski Free Week from January 21 – 27, 2013, one parent gets a free lift ticket with the purchase of a teen or child full price full day lift ticket. Mention the Parents Ski Free deal when picking up the lift ticket for your kid.

A host of other Sipapu ski-for-free deals through the season make me wonder if anyone will pay full price! These people get free lift tickets:

  • Kids ski free aged 6 and under every day with proof of age
  • Fourth Graders ski free every day with proof such as a current report card
  • 40 Year Olds ski free every day – gotta love that one. If you’re forty, you ski or ride free with proof of age
  • 60 Year Olds ski free every day and you must be exactly 60, with proof of age.
  • Free lift ticket for skiers aged 70+ every day with proof of age
  • Active Military ski free with military ID. There are some blackout dates – see this link

You need to mention the relevant offer when you turn up, ‘cos, like, they’re not mind-readers. Sipapu is about a 2.5 hour drive from Albuquerque via Santa Fe, 20 miles southeast of Taos.

Inn of the Mountain Gods Deals

Comments Off on Inn of the Mountain Gods Deals

The Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort & Casino at Mescalero, near Ruidoso, NM, offers several lodging deals for a lake and mountain getaway, for skiers, and some Valentines specials.

I’ve not stayed overnight at the Inn of the Mountain Gods, but I have visited when researching a magazine article, and the AAA Four Diamond resort is a rather spectacular property. Owned by the Mescalero Apache Tribe – which also runs Ski Apache – the Inn is set on Lake Mescalero with great mountain views. Activities include skiing and other outdoor leisure, and, of course, gaming.

Inn of the Mountain Gods lodging deals currently include a $99 Great Escape package for stays on Sunday to Thursday through April 30, 2012. The package includes a one night stay, breakfast buffet for two people, and two margaritas in Wendell’s Lounge. I think that’s a pretty good deal for a quick getaway! There are some blackout dates.

They also offer a  Ski Apache package until March 1, 2012. Get the fourth night free when you book a three night stay, plus they throw in two free adult lift tickets. Use the promo code SEASON when booking and note there are some blackout dates.

A couple of Valentines Packages don’t look quite such a good deal to me, but I’ll mention them in case you’re interested. The Valentines Packages are for stays on Sundays to Thursdays throughout February, 2012, but they must be booked by February 8.  Options are $149 for one night in a superior or luxury room, including champagne and six red roses (use promo code: LOVE 1) or $249 for 1 night in a Suite with champagne, 4 chocolate-covered strawberries and 1 dozen red roses (use promoc code: LOVE 2).

Get all details of the Inn of the Mountain Gods lodging deals at the link, and book online or call 1-800-545-9011.

While you’re there, you might try Smokey B’s Apache Taco Challenge. Any hungry soul who can eat the 6 pound 6 ounce Apache Taco within an hour (with no help from anyone else) gets the taco free! Otherwise, you pay the full price: it’s a $20.99 taco – but you can take the leftovers with you :-)

Inn of the Mountain Gods is approximately 188 miles southeast of Albuquerque, located on the Mescalero Apache Reservation, just a few minutes outside Ruidoso, New Mexico.

These $9.99 adult lift tickets are available in limited quantities for Sunday, March 29 only, so act quickly. If you miss out — or you want to ski Saturday instead — don’t despair. You can still enjoy cheap skiing in NM with heavily discounted Sipapu lift tickets through the end of the season. For example, you can now get an adult lift ticket for just $25 — still quite a bargain, compared to big Colorado resorts.
