Although the name “Santa Fe” might evoke some very warm images of New Mexico in spring and summer, this unique city is also one of the most beloved destinations among snow sports enthusiasts from around the world. Luxury real estate owners and visitors to the area are treated to fresh powder throughout the winter months, as well as some of the most breathtaking vistas in all of the Southwest, regardless of time of year. This year, Ski Santa Fe is kicking off 2017 in style with some live music near the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range, which is one of the most beautiful parts of the Rocky Mountains.
Ski Santa Fe is welcoming winter sports lovers to come out on Jan. 14 to hear the cool sounds of Sean Lucy from 11:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. local time, giving you all the time you need to listen to good music, eat at Totemoff’s Bar and Grill, and get some good runs in on the mountain. The group also suggests all visitors who attend this particular event try out a green chile cheeseburger from this venue, as it will warm you up and give you enough energy to keep riding on the fresh powder. Concerts such as this will be held throughout the busy four-month season.
This coming year will be the first time Ski Santa Fe offers its new My Pass, which costs $409 and comes with no restrictions throughout the entire winter season for individuals 13 to 23 years of age. Weather forecasters are calling for a pretty snowy start to 2017, and the Rocky Mountains have already seen several feet of accumulation in certain areas, meaning that this might be the right year to get your kids a no-restriction pass for endless cold-weather fun.
All of the information you could need on a given day is available through the official Ski Santa Fe website, including current conditions like temperature and precipitation, as well as which trails and lifts are open in real-time. The site states at the moment that the base stands at 33 inches, and that there have been 9 inches of snow in the past week, meaning now is the time to get up there and ride like you never have before!
