About Our Resort
Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort is New Mexico’s fastest growing resort (yet you won’t wait in line for a lift). Both first-time and returning guests alike appreciate the quintessential mountain life found only at Sipapu: a fun, friendly mountain (where your kids won’t get lost, perfect for skiers and boarders of all skill levels); clean, simple accommodations (no in-room TVs or phones – we believe families should connect with each other, not over their electronics; cable TV is available in the lodge and cell service is usually available throughout the property); and the best deals around, which allows everyone to have the family vacation they want at prices they can easily afford.
