Skiing in Santa Fe Trails

The Santa Fe ski area provides several trails for every experience level. There are also 7 available ski lifts to transport you to the trails higher up the mountain. Whether you are just a beginner or have blazed the mountainsides for years, you will have plenty of options. However, most of these trails will remain closed until there is enough snow on the mountain, usually towards the end of November.

Santa Fe Disc Golf Course

The ski mountain isn’t reserved for just winter guests. In fact, fall visitors have the opportunity to enjoy an exciting and challenging 18-hole disc golf course! The course winds through the alpine environment, its highest point reaching 11,565 feet. That makes this course one of the highest in the world!

From September to the beginning of October, chair lifts are available to escort you through the course. After this time frame, it can only be reached by hiking. This will give you the chance to explore and enjoy Santa Fe’s beautiful autumn weather as you play. Just be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen, water, and snacks!
