Same thing happened to my buddy at Big White on opening day a few years back, a few splotches of grease on his brand new $400 jacket. He complained to the management and at first they told him your screwed, but he persisted and eventually got a new jacket out of it.

So if they tell you to fuck off don't give up.

I went today and I didn't whine to them because I got over it. My jacket is still stained but whatever. Going again tomorrow. Can;t complain when a full day pass is $15 with my discount card.

Where - Albuquerque, New Mexico
How Much is a Season pass - They don't sell stand alone season passes but I think the passes at Ski santa fe work there (they cost like $440)
What's the vert - totally shitty

oh and tickets are only $15 if you buy a $60 discount card

There is a discount card you can get that's $49 and you get to ride Sandia Ski for $15 and Ski Santa Fe for $25 full day. Good Deal. After you go only 2 times it's already paid off. You can use it all season long too.

Sandia about 25 minutes away


Santa Fe about 1hour away

I wish my local mountain was that cheap or that high. Heck the summit is only 3200 above sea level and they charge $57 for a midweek pass.

Abuquerque itself is about a mile high. Santa Fe is higher.
Sandia is a diversion, fun for what it is which is not much. Ski Santa Fe is the real deal. A full fledged west coast ski area (not to be confused with a west coast resort)

2,000 feet of vert isn't "totally shitty".

You don't look at the chair before you sit on it?
