Hit The Slopes This Spring
And just like that, another season is on its way out in Northern New Mexico. It’s hard to believe that only a few months ago we were looking forward to the upcoming El Nino winter and here we are with the excitement and celebrations of March just around the corner. Of the many Taos attractions, the area’s ski resorts are always the place to be as the temperatures warm and the snow softens. El Pueblo Lodge is here to serve as your spring skiing headquarters.
All of the area resorts showcase hilariously fun beach weeks, Hawaii themed days and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations through the month of March. Read on to learn more about four of our favorite early spring mountain traditions.
