Soak up the winter landscapes wrapped in a blanket, surrounded by white and the sound of sleigh bells. In winter months, Angel Fire–based Roadrunner Tours offers four cozy excursions daily, winding through the spruce- and aspen-filled Carson National Forest. Choose an hour-long afternoon excursions with warming tents for a homemade hot cocoa stop or a two-hour evening dinner excursion, complete with rib-eye steak, baked beans, and cookies—or whatever else the chuckwagon cook has whipped up. Sleigh tours usually begin the week before Christmas and run through March, depending on snowfall. (Reservations recommended.)
Taos Indian Horse Ranch offers sleigh rides on Taos Pueblo lands.
It’s a different kind of quiet while sleigh riding. All you’ll hear is the horses trotting and the sleigh’s runners gliding on the icy snow.
