The hotel was so nasty that I got sick while there. I had a sore throat the entire time I was skiing. The actual hill was fine, The hotel was just nasty. I you are going to go here I would recommend getting a cabin.

Spent two weeks at Sipapu ski resort this fall and the service from the kitchen was excellent. Michael Garcia made our stay very comfortable and the food was great. Will be coming back for sure in the future.

My husband and I like staying at Sipapu. We stayed in one of the cabins, very rustic but clean. No TV or internet which suits us just fine. They have a food truck, we had a really good sandwich and they have a bar.

For tubing you will have to go to Taos and for snowmobiling you will have to go to Red River.

That is only a few weeks after the ski season ends, so there will probably still be a snow base on the mountain. Their mountain would be great for disc golf, but I would definitely call and make sure the course is open.

They are Slightly easier than Taos. We had constant (sometimes white out) snow when I was at whitefish so that made visibility more difficult, but the green runs were pretty similar to Taos's. I had more time and better visibility at Taos, and I got to run the blues and greens enough to get comfortable on them in skis. I didn't have as much time at whitefish, and I'm new to snowboarding, which made it more difficult for me, but it wouldn't be for most people. The altitude is much lower at whitefish though so it's easier to breathe and you have more energy. Taos is extremely high in altitude making it more difficult to breathe, nose bleeds, all that fun stuff. Hope that helps.
