A fun way to see Albuquerque. A very affordable attraction. The tour guides are quite knowledgable. Be sure to take lots of pictures and visit the Ski Museum on the way out.

If you are travelling to Albuquerque or Santa Fe, you have to stop here! It was an amazing experience with beautiful sights. You can also hike around at the top of the mountain and able to go down anytime. Definitely recommend.

Almost a half hour trip to the peak. Skiing during the winter season which was a dream of the founders and the city!

Sorry, I cannot help you. I am an Australian living in Thailand and I haven't seen snow for more than 50 years, and don't care to see it again, thank you very much.
