This was our first time cross country skiing, and while the terrain was a little tough for some of us, but everyone had a great time. The scenery is beautiful and the staff is friendly.

The trails were fun for cross country skiing and the views were great. Staff was friendly and the rental skis were adequate. It's worth a visit if you are in the area or want a nice day trip from Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

There's a lot of activities to do in this area. You can go for snowmobile, sledging, tubing. Enchanted ski area is also big as well, and they are not expensive as well.
