New Mexico, a surprising contender as a top ski state in the US has been a best-kept secret. There are several mountains with elevations over 12,000 feet that receive impressive amounts of snow when a storm rolls through. Plus, you’ll have great weather to ski or snowboard in with New Mexico’s classic blue skies. Neighboring states tend to steal the crowds of avid skiers and snowboarders while likely breaking their bank. Affordability is just another perk you’ll find here. Ski Apache has 11 lifts and an annual snowfall of over 15 feet. Come check out our beautiful New Mexico ski resort with terrain for beginners to advanced.
