Downhill and Cross-Country Skiing
Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Four Seasons Resort Santa Fe is a short distance from exhilarating ski slopes and pristine powder. Ski Santa Fe, the closest ski resort, offers 660 acres of stunning terrain and 1725 vertical feet of skiing. Something for everyone – from children to experts, the resort has 77 trails and averages 225 inches of snowfall annually. A one-and-a-half hour's drive from Santa Fe will lead you to Taos Ski Valley, known for its light, dry powder, tree glades and steep chutes. With one of the country's highest rated ski schools, skiers of all levels will enjoy the invigorating mix of terrain – over 1,294 acres.

Santa Fe Holiday Festivities
In December, Santa Fe comes alive for the holidays, combining traditions from Spanish, Native American and Old West heritage. While the December event calendar is brimming with events, Christmas Eve in the Santa Fe Plaza is a magical place, as thousands of farolitos, the luminous bags of candles, light up the city centre. Adventure Center guides offer a special city tour for the holidays, a hot chocolate tasting, because in Santa Fe, chocolate takes on a spicy element with the addition of local chiles.
