It really isn't that much further up to Santa Fe, and IMO the environment is WAY better, the trails are groomed and unlike Apache, you can find powder to play in almost all season long! Don't mean to discourage your trip, skiing is fun anywhere, just saying for a few extra bucks you can have a way better experience.
PropLockandDropkick Awesome info newski!
We are definitely thinking early to mid february... This makes me feel alot better about our trip. I think we will do a long weekend, so our Friday runs should be pretty chill, then we will just deal with the "traffic" on sat and sun.
Myself and all my family are PSIA ski instructors. We will never ever go there due to the rudeness of the employees (local Mecsalero indians and typically drunk). The mountain is okay if there is good snow. For a family, Red River or Angel Fire. Good skiers, no better place than Taos. The friendliest place is where we teach at Sandia Peak in Albuquerque. You can ski and play golf, horse back ride or whatever in the same day. I know this is too late, but if anyone wants to bring a family or a small group and be guided by pros, hit me up.
