'Free lift tickets to all guests this Saturday and Sunday and again April 12-13 for the resort's closing weekend'
Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort, New Mexico’s year-round destination for family-friendly, family fun, will offer free lift tickets to all guests this Saturday and Sunday and again April 12-13 for the resort's closing weekend.
Officials say they’re running Lift #1, which services terrain from the top of the mountain to the bottom, and Lift #2, which provides access to Sipapu's practice slope, at no charge to celebrate the resort's 62nd winter season.
"Sipapu's 2013-2014 ski and snowboard season has been one of the most successful on record, and we made the decision to give all of our guests free lift tickets as a way of showing our deep gratitude," said general manager Gary Forrest.
Lifts are open Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and mountain officials expect to have up to 12 runs open this weekend, including four beginner trails, seven intermediate trails and one advanced run this weekend. Sipapu's largest terrain park, Don Diego, is also scheduled to be open. All resort services, including ski school, the full-service rental shop, mountain dining and slopeside lodging will be available.

April 13 marks the last day of operations for Sipapu, and it will be the tenth season the resort has been the last to close in New Mexico over the last 12 years. This year also marked the eleventh consecutive season Sipapu opened before any other ski area in the state.
