ALTO, N.M. (Dec. 29, 2021) – Following an unusually warm, dry fall, Ski Apache is set to open for the 2021–2022 winter season on Wednesday, Dec. 29, weather permitting. Whether it’s hitting the slopes or taking in the beautiful scenery, there’s fun in store for the whole family.
“The entire team is ready and excited to finally welcome back winter to Ski Apache,” said Ken Marlatt, Director of Operations at Ski Apache. “Thanks to a little help from Mother Nature and our talented snowmaking team, we’re thankful to be able to open the bottom of the mountain before the end of the year.”
Ski Apache will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with chair #3, #5 and scenic gondola running, weather dependent. Guests can enjoy discounted $49.99 lift tickets until the resort is able to open additional terrain
Ski Apache is best known for its mild winter temperatures and abundance of blue-bird skiing. The mountain’s high elevations, combined with its southerly latitude, gives the resort a unique advantage of seeing abundant snowfall but comfortable weather. It’s this promise of blue-bird days and superb snow conditions that lures skiers and riders from far and wide. The resort, owned by the Mescalero Apache Tribe, features 750 skiable acres across 55 runs accessed by 11 lifts and the only eight-passenger gondola in the state.
