Discover a getaway the whole family will love and you can easily afford. Just 20 miles southeast of  Taos and two hours north of Albuquerque, Sipapu has a 13-year track record of being the first resort in the state to open. The uncrowded slopes and unique family-friendly vibe keep guests returning for generations.

Sipapu’s philosophy is to be the most family-friendly resort in the Rockies, and guests have been bringing their children and grandchildren to our mountain since 1952. Our resort is small enough so that kids won’t get lost, and our laid-back style is perfect for families looking to simply enjoy a family vacation they can afford.

Our philosophy is to be the most family-friendly resort, and we cater to family budgets by offering FREE lift tickets, FREE lessons and FREE lodging deals, including our most popular offer: stay FREE with the purchase of one $44 lift ticket. View all Ski Free deals here.

New for 2017/2018 Ski Season

Lodge Remodel & Expansion

We’ve added over 2,000 square feet to our lodge while retaining all of its historic charm. The expanded lodge houses a new rental shop and ticket office, new bathrooms and a ski locker room, and more gathering space for friends and family to meet up.

More Skiable Terrain

Ski or snowboard our newest terrain: 5 acres across Howdy and Lower Bambi, serviced by our newest quad lift. Improved snowmaking infrastructure means more snow on the mountain from Opening Day through the entire winter season.
