Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area

COVID-19 & the State of New Mexico

Dec 1, 2020, update from Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham:

The state of New Mexico is allowing non-essential business to open in a 3 tiered system, Red, Yellow, and Green by county. Even under Red non-essential businesses are allowed to be open to 25% of normal operating capacity. What this means for EFXC is we can open!

That said, we still need snow. It is snowing today, December 1st, and we hope to get quite a bit, but we do need at least another 6 inches to cover bare spots and thin areas.

“But you had so much snow!?” Yes we did, but it was early and some weeks after that big 23 inch snow were in the 60’s! So we need colder temperatures and more snow to get EFXC ready to open.

Keep watching here and on our FaceBook page for more information when we have it.

It Really Is Enchanting!

“My friend and I went for the Christmas night luminaria trail and stayed in the Little John yurt. It was amazing… Toasty warm with everything we needed. This is my new Christmas tradition.”

“This place is awesome! It was out first time show shoeing and what a great experience. The trails are nicely groomed… Even our youngest did great and enjoyed it.”
