UPDATED: Another Delay for Ski Apache

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Warm temperatures and little snow atop the mountains west of Ruidoso have forced Ski Apache to delay its opening another week, the Ruidoso News reported.

A ski resort official told the News on Monday that the tentative start has been moved back to Dec. 14, and the resort is hoping that a predicted weather change will bring cooler temperatures and more snow.

Normally, Ski Apache shoots for a Thanksgiving Day start of its skiing and snowboarding season.


7:29am 11/29/12 — Ski Apache Set To Open Dec. 7

By ABQnews Staff

Ski Apache, the nation’s southernmost ski area, is tentatively set to open on Friday, Dec. 7 with beginner chairs 3 and 5 operating, the resort said in a news release.

Warm weather delayed the hoped-for opening on Thanksgiving Day, but it also allowed for continued construction of Ski Apache’s two new lifts and high-speed gondola, the Apache Arrow, the news release said.

Lift tickets are now on sale and lessons may be reserved on the resort’s website, www.SkiApache.com. Tickets are $55 for adults, $48 for seniors (60 and older), $44 for military personnel, $46 for teens (13 to 17) and $35 for children under 13.
