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....

This was our first time in Sipapu, instead of a run of the mill hotel we wanted to stay in the middle of nowhere. To begin, yes, this hotel is in the middle of nowhere. It is nice,quaint, full of nature but also other things that come with nature such as some convenience missing. While nothing is wrong with hotel...

We found this place on the map as we planned our ski trip to Taos and decided to give it a try and were pleasantly suprised. The service was local and friendly and probably not so uptight as at Taos Mountain and other more expensive places such as those, but we tend to avoid the more uppity entitled-type folks like...

What a beautiful place! We stayed in apartment 9b. We knew it wasn't going to be luxury based on the reviews; no hair dryer, no daily maid service, no pool etc. and we were TOTALLY fine with that. We went there specifically to fish for trout. They have a stocked trout pond, but we ended up having more success in...

We were there with a group of 12 guys doing climbing, backpacking & rafting. Our room had 2 double bunks and one queen bed for 6 guys. It was ok. No AC, one small bath with shower. We spent most of our time outside, so the room was adequate for what we needed. I don't know what it cost since...
