Many of our locals will tell you that The City Different is a beautiful and magical place to visit during the winter. We are blessed with a wide range of winter scenery; from the snow covered pines a short drive up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the cozy charm of crackling fireplaces found in the lobbies of many Santa Fe hotels. With Christmas and New Year’s Eve over, our city invites you to partake in all its peaceful winter goodness and fall in love with these five February events.Order My Santa Fe Travel Guide
February Events at Ski Santa Fe
There’s no feeling in the world like that of the majesty of the mountain passing beneath your feet as you descend the pristine Southwest peaks. Ski Santa Fe is situated at the southernmost tip of the Rocky Mountains and offers some of the highest elevation skiing and snowboarding in the nation. The ski area boasts the best combination of both snow and sun with a 12,075 ft. summit, 1,725 ft. drop and average 225 inches of annual snowfall.
Ski Santa Fe offers a wonderful variety of runs from leisurely and secluded to long, steep and exhilarating. From the teeniest youngsters just discovering the bunny slope to serious skiers and snowboarders, the mountain offers something for all styles and abilities. Adults can drop the kiddos off at the Chipmunk Corner, a full service youth facility offering top-notch instruction where kids can learn to ski or snowboard in an area designated to them. After working up an appetite on the slopes there’s nothing as satisfying as a bowl of green chile stew and a locally brewed beer at the mid-mountain Totemoff Bar and Grill.
For all you music lovers, there’ll be live music every Saturday during the month of February. Visit the event calendar for the full performance schedule. The Burton Women’s Snow Board Camp will be taking place February 15th. This camp is designed for women, led by female instructors. Improve your riding while exploring new terrain in small groups.
