Sipapu was our family's first foray into the world of skiing, and it did not disappoint! We had such a great time! We missed out on ski lessons because they sold out, but we muddled through and had a fantastic time! The area is beautiful, the slopes are nice, and the staff was very accommodating.

I can't say that I utilized their lodging, or ate at the cafe. I checked it out, but was repelled by the smell of antiquated cooking oil. They have great fudge in the sport shop, which carries no odor to indicate it originated upstairs. Everyone was friendly, though. The upper mountain has great tree skiing, and there's plenty of groomer...

We have enjoyed skiing at Sipapu for years. We enjoy their runs and the lift staff is friendly. There are rarely lines for the lift. The "suites" offer good space for a family, but are not fancy (no phone which us fine, limited kitchenware). We have often run into little issues, this year we had no power or last day....

We always have a good time skiing and snowboarding at Sipapu, but the last few years our trips have been fantastic! Great slopes, good food and Mike the bartender is awesome! We had a couple of extra spicy Bloody Mary's and they were delicious!

This wonderful resort is just breath taking. I have been coming to Sipapu for about 5 years now. We travel with a large group every year for Mardi Gras. I am the designated Chef for the trip and keep everyone fed. The Main Lodge has just been rebuilt and i am looking forward to seeing it in person at the...

Pretty nice mountain with no lines at the lift and a really good staff. You can stay there, rent equipment there, and get cut rate lift tickets. We had some awesome conditions for 2 days which made it even better. The onsite lodging is spartan, but convenient. No village within 20 minutes. But that aside, the skiing is worth it....

Had the best time skiing yesterday. While I waited for my boyfriend to finish up some runs I sat at the bar and hung out with Micheal. He is so awesome. Always busy but it never showed. He made a cherry margarita that was amazing. Once everyone saw it they started ordering it. The diablo chicken sandwich was fantastic as...

Great place, very friendly, excellent service and extremely helpful! Jesse is the bartender to have and Greg is the best ski instructor on the mountain. Love from the Perkins crew ❤ We have had an amazing time.... Staying in Pendaries is the perfect choice!

My daughter and son-in-law talked us into trying skiing and snowboarding for the first time and this was the resort they selected based on suggestions from friends. It is a very low-key, no frills location, but still comfortable and a good place for folks who are on a budget or don't want to break the bank while testing things out....
