Skiing New Mexico: A Guide to Snow Sports in the Land of Enchantment


Daniel Gibson

This invaluable book tells you everything there is to know about skiing and snowboarding in the Land of Enchantment, with thousands of helpful details on the state’s downhill ski resorts and cross-country and backcountry venues.

Each ski area is profiled in a separate chapter, including details on facilities and services such as childcare and instructional options; statistics like average snowfall, vertical drop, and lift capacity; transportation options, including shuttle and bus services; and prices of lift tickets, rental equipment, and lessons. Gibson also includes historical facts about each ski area and its founders, suggestions for best runs by type of terrain, activities off the slopes, and notes on his favorite places to stay and eat. Separate chapters on cross-country and backcountry downhill skiing are equally informative.
