Sandia Peak Ski Area
Just 17 minutes from Albuquerque via the Sandia Peak Tramway , this popular full-service alpine ski area boasts 30 trails. Ski season begins on Thanksgiving weekend and usually ends the first of April. The ski area is ideal for the mid-level skier. Sandia welcomes snowboarders and telemark skiers and boasts competitive rates. Ski classes are available as well as ski equipment rentals and demos.
Don't go there unless you are 1) teenager AND 2)snowboarder AND 3) beginner.
This area is notorious for attracting beginner snowboarder teens because it's cheap. They will be crowding the runs, sitting on the snow all over the place. There always a lot of them.
The runs are bad, shallow, and the snow is always of poor quality because snowboarders destroy it quick after grooming. Sandia doesn't bother grooming more often than once a week. So, good luck finding that velvet.
Chair lifts are so slow (it takes 15+ minutes to get to the top) and very uncomfortable. There is no leg support and sits are very hard. Your legs will be numb by the time you get to the top. The lifts stop every couple minutes because snowboarders can never normally get on and off the lift.
There is a short lift that intermittently works but the run under it is no worth trying, pretty much a bunny slope.
Overall: unequivocally, wins the 'worst ski area in New Mexico'. Doesn't worse even that cheapo money they charge for it.
Off note, snow patrol is very rude, don't try swinging your legs on a lift chair, they will clip off your ticket.
