Santa Fe Ski Season is Upon Us

Imagine the wind on your face and the sun on your back, and stunning mountain vistas everywhere you look as you wind your way down the mountainsides of Santa Fe.  It may come as a surprise to some of you, but Santa Fe is home to some of the best skiing in the Southwest.  Most years, the Santa Fe ski areas receive up to 300 inches of snow throughout the season, which runs from late fall into spring, allowing for the many races, winter festivals and other events that come to the area over the winter.  The expansive blue, sunny skies and plenty of mountains to ski, make Santa Fe is a skier’s paradise.  Let El Farolito Bed and Breakfast Inn be your home away from home this winter, when you escape to Santa Fe for a wintry ski getaway.  Our luxurious accommodations will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed after a long day on the slopes, which are conveniently located just 30 minutes from our front door.  Book your room today, and start mapping out your Santa Fe ski adventure.
