Colorado? I don't think so...


Recommended Posts

New Mexico is kicking arse this year. It started off slow but the past few weeks have put us at 100% open terrain STATE WIDE. Almost unheard of.

Santa Fe has almost a 90" base!!!

Most Colorado resorts are sitting at 30-50" bases.

Come on down...the snow is fabulous!
