Ski in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Someone mentioned after I published my article about tourist attractions in New Mexico that I should talk a little about skiing in New Mexico and especially in Santa Fe.
If you like top services for hotels & condos in America you can find luxury ski deals online with Supertravel.co.uk, but if you are looking for budget accommodation Santa Fe is a great place to visit.
Ski Santa Fe is located just north of the city and has a big range of slopes so both beginners and ski experts can have a good time. Those who like the extreme can experience Big Tesuque, this is a spectacular out-of-bounds trail.
The ski infrastructure is quite impressive; the locals say that lift lines are very rare considering the seven lifts can carry up to 10000 skiers per hour. 
Keep in mind that there are no lodges at the ski area, but there are some nice cafés and food courts where tourist can relax and get something to eat.
The ski resort is also family-friendly, the Chipmunk corner is a fun and safe place where parents can take their kids to learn the sport. A varied selection of training packages is also available for tourists of all ages and this makes the resort very beginner friendly.
If you are in the area for more than a couple of days try to keep some time in order to explore the town of Santa Fe. This is a wonderful middle sized town with some of the oldest most beautiful buildings in America. The town centre is easy to explore on foot and has a lot to offer, it's great for shopping and the restaurants are usually very good.
