Coming off of a very successful opening weekend, Sipapu received 4 inches of fresh snow overnight.
Sipapu’s mountain crews will begin snow making efforts once again this evening, continuing through the rest of the week as conditions permit, mostly during night hours. More terrain and additional lifts, including Lift 1, will come online and be available as conditions permit.
For the 14th consecutive year, Sipapu was the first ski area to open in New Mexico Saturday, Nov. 19 with Lifts 2 and 5 turning, and intermediate and beginner terrain open.
Sipapu also welcomed the University of New Mexico ski team for their first early season training on Monday. Gates were set up on Thumper for the ski team to use as practice.
Sipapu Ski Resort is open daily for the Thanksgiving Holiday week, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Nov. 28.
