A Few Words On The Snow

If you're waiting for a powder day at Ski Santa Fe Resort, then you might have a long wait. Only 9.0% of winter days see more than 6 inches of snowfall, which means, on average, you'll have to spend 10 days or more mining the slopes at Ski Santa Fe Resort to score that one great day. It could be worse, however. You could be muskie fishing.

Skiing at Ski Santa Fe Resort is about getting outside, ripping up the slope, eating chili dogs and getting in as much vertical as you can. It's not about big dumps. And that's okay. This place is about honing your skills for that trip to Snowbird or Alaska. With only 2.0% of months at Ski Santa Fe Resort getting more than 90 inches of snow, this isn't the place to set up your powderhound shack.

Drought Potential

If you're banking on snow and you're boarding a plane for a week at Ski Santa Fe Resort, you should temper your expectations. This is a place where winter drought can grab hold of the weather pattern for long periods, as 35.0% of the winter months here see less than 30 inches of snow.

Getting to Ski Santa Fe Resort, if you're flying in

Driving from the Albequerque airport can cost a traveler more two hours when driving conditions aren't ideal, so its definitely time that you have to budget into your trip, as the 96-minute drive is often enough to keep skiers from getting snow time on their last day in town.
