The trails were fun for cross country skiing and the views were great. Staff was friendly and the rental skis were adequate. It's worth a visit if you are in the area or want a nice day trip from Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

The trails were well marked and the equipment was very good. The scenery was also great. Remember it's high elevation, so you'll need to adjust to the lower oxygen at first.

There's a lot of activities to do in this area. You can go for snowmobile, sledging, tubing. Enchanted ski area is also big as well, and they are not expensive as well.
