Purgatory Ski Resort
Sipapu and Purgatory ski resorts will open for ski season this weekend, and Pajarito Ski Area will follow next month.
Atomic City Update: Ski season is finally here

I have good news for all the outdoor enthusiasts in the community: Ski season is officially here. After months of warm temperatures, the lifts at the local ski resorts are open, or will open in the coming weeks.

This weekend, for the 15th year in a row, Sipapu Ski Resort will be the first ski area in the state to open.

“Thanks to our hardworking and dedicated mountain team, Sipapu is once again the first resort to open for the season in New Mexico,” said John Paul Bradley, Sipapu’s mountain manager.  “We’ve been watching the weather and taking advantage of favorable temperatures to continue making snow, staying up at all hours to make snow when the opportunities arose.”

Though the Pajarito Ski Area was originally set to open for the season next Friday, the opening has been pushed back to Dec. 16 because of unseasonably warm weather for this time of year.

From now until April, the slopes will be full of people, both young and old.

People in this area truly are fortunate to have so many outdoor opportunities available to them. In addition to the ski resorts in the immediate area, there are many places within driving distance that offer unbelievable slopes as well, ensuring that nobody will get bored of the slopes all season long.
