I'd just go to the cheapest resort if one is just learning how to ride. You just need one mellow slope to keep yourself occupied. I did my first couple days at a resort called sipapu. It's very small but it was all that I needed. Ski Santa Fe is pretty cheap and a very nice ski area but it will be busy then, especially the beginner areas. Ski Apache would be legit but it could also not have enough snow at that point. I would recommend Sipapu, Angelfire, Pajarito, or Taos. (maybe red river too.) Not too many lift ticket deals, try liftopia.com for some mediocre deals.
