    Sandia Peak Ski Area Opens

    Friday, February 10 - Open Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sundays and Presidents day Monday Feb 19

    Sandia Peak Ski Area Announces Saturday, February 10 Opening
    Mountain Capital Partners assumes ownership & management of New Mexico’s original ski area

    Albuquerque, New Mex. – Sandia Peak Ski Area will open 100% of its terrain starting tomorrow, February 10. This marks the first time the ski area has been open since 2022.

    Beginning Saturday at 9 a.m., Lift 3 will provide access to top-to-bottom skiing across 300 skiable acres on all 35 trails. Resort officials say they’re expanding the ski area’s operating hours to be open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Fridays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Presidents’ Day Monday, February 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    “The reopening of Sandia Peak was never an ‘if’ but a ‘when’ for this team, and we are tremendously proud to give skiers and snowboarders in Albuquerque and throughout the region the freedom to ski,” said Scott Leigh, Sandia Peak and Mountain Capital Partners project manager.

    Weather and snow forecasting service OpenSnow is projecting up to 7” of snow at Sandia Peak through the weekend. The latest snowfall totals will be updated regularly on the new ski area website, http://www.sandia.ski.

    Leigh added that while 100% of terrain will be available, beginner-friendly access will be limited. Opening weekend will feature a “first chair” event at the bottom of Lift 3 at 9 a.m. All skier services including ski school, food and beverage and rentals will be available, although food and beverage options and rental equipment quantities will be limited.

    Lift tickets for Saturday and Sunday are as low as $79, and select dates throughout the season will be available starting at $19. All tickets, ski school lessons and rentals must be pre-purchased online at http://www.sandia.ski. Beginning today, guests ages 12 and younger can sign up for Power Kids, the no-strings-attached-FREE season pass that provides unlimited access to Sandia Peak plus MCP’s additional 11 ski areas and bike parks.
