Sandia Peak Ski Area Summer Operations Delayed

Due to the Stage 3 fire restrictions and ongoing summer maintenance, Sandia Peak Ski Area will delay the opening of Summer Mountain Biking and Scenic Chair Rides scheduled for the July 4th weekend 2014.

The US Forest Service will be implementing Stage 3 Fire Restrictions on June 30th, 2014. As part of the restriction, Crest Scenic Byway 536 and Sandia Peak Ski Area will be closed.

Once the fire restrictions are lifted and the lift maintenance is completed we will open for the remainder of the scheduled summer season. Please follow us at for the latest news and up-coming events.

The Sandia Peak Tramway, High Finance Restaurant and Sandiago's Mexican Grill will not be affected by the restriction and will be operating as normal. Visitor access will be limited to the deck area and buildings. Come enjoy the beautiful Sandia Mountains in the heart of the Cibola National Forest.
