Join us this weekend for our most popular family event, February Fun Fest! This free event runs Feb. 17-19 and includes a giant snow castle, costume contest and parade, mountain-wide treasure hunt, games, prizes and more!

Sipapu's Snow Castle – Opens Feb. 17
Every year, a giant snow castle is built by the mountain team at Sipapu. It’s a snow playground for all ages and the only one in New Mexico! Each year, the snow castle changes in design, but what remains constant is the sheer size, which is usually two to three stories tall, with the unique creation of stairs, slides, flags, and plenty of places to play in the snow. The building of the snow castle has already begun, and opens at 9am on Saturday, Feb. 17 for all to explore and enjoy.

Treasure Hunt – Feb. 17-19
This weekend, Sipapu also hosts a Treasure Hunt - part scavenger hunt and all adventure! Search the mountain Sat., Sun., and Mon. from 9am to 4pm for laminated letters. When letters gathered spell CLOWN, return them to Ski School for a great prize!

Santa Fe Brewing Happy Hops Hunt – Feb. 17
For those 21 and older, partake in the Santa Fe Brewing Happy Hops Hunt, a mountain-wide scavenger hunt in search of Santa Fe Brewing cans stuffed with prizes. Watch Sipapu’s Facebook and Twitter pages the day of the event for tips and clues to find the hidden cans.  Redeem prizes in the base area.

Lloyd Bolander Memorial Pine Cup Race – Feb. 24
Sipapu and the Santa Fe Ski Team invite skiers, snowboarders, and telemarkers of all ages and abilities to participate in the Lloyd Bolander Memorial Pine Cup Race. This giant slalom fun race is in honor of Lloyd Bolander, who founded Sipapu in 1950 and passed away in January 2014.  Race proceeds  support the Santa Fe Ski Team.

Lloyd Bolander was known for his passion for teaching others, especially children, how to ski. Sipapu continues Lloyd's vision and on February 24th, a portion of proceeds from lift ticket sales will be contributed to the Bolander Fund, which supports area youth ski programs and needs.

Sipapu’s lifts turn 9am to 4pm daily.  For more information, visit
