Ski Santa Fe Shuttle Service:
There are many people who aren’t aware that there is great skiing in New Mexico! In fact, close to home is Ski Santa Fe, Santa Fe’s very own ski resort and every year it attracts skiing enthusiasts from all over the country (and other parts of the world!). Located just 15 miles from the city, getting there is easier than ever thanks to a new shuttle bus service launched to take skiers to and from the resort.
Ski Santa Fe has no less than 79 trails, 20% of which are ideal for beginners, with 40% aimed at the most experienced skiers. This year the resort is hoping to be open on November 28th and it is hoped that the ski season will be able to run until March 4th next year.
All in all there are more than 660 acres of terrain in and around the resort for you to ski and explore and this is one of the most beautiful parts of the world. The resort itself dates back more than 30 years with construction beginning in 1985. In 1987 the resort was host to its first Winter Festival. Almost every year since then the resort has been developed and added to, making it one of the most impressive resorts in the US.
You might be wondering about that all-important après-ski and if so, look no further than the city of Santa Fe. There are more than 200 restaurants in our city, serving cuisines from all over the world or you can relax in the Santa Fe plaza which dates back more than 400 years.
And now with the addition of the RTD bus service you can reach the resort so much more easily when staying in Santa Fe. The bus picks up at South Capital Rail Runner Station between Cordova Rd. and Alta Vista St. and then makes a few additional stops around and at Fort Marcy Park, just a couple streets over from Inn on the Paseo. The route takes the bus through the downtown area and along NM 475 until you reach the Ski Basin. To find out more about this service check out the official brochure here.
We look forward to welcoming you at Inn on the Paseo this winter! Our location can’t be beat and you’ll experience all the comforts of home while you’re here!
