thanks guys. hmm prehaps i can stay in town instead of slope side for santa fe? it should be a 20 minute drive to the slope? any recommendations for lodging and places for discount tickets?
for ski apache, is the top of the mountain area beginner friendly? i like the fact that it is a completely opened area, but it is marked as a blue run. i am not sure if that is a good place for someone to start on. i started on a green at breckenridge which was super mellow and pretty easy for anyone.
