Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area

We’re Closed

EFXC will continue to groom our trails for free, use at your own risk, skiing. We will groom the skate lanes more regularly, with occasional setting of classic track. Our warming hut and warming yurt will be closed. Please bring your own water and snacks. For those of you who want to “tip” us or our volunteer groomers:

By order of NM Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham:  Starting Thursday, March 19, 2020, shopping malls, recreational facilities, health clubs, spas, movie theaters, and flea markets are directed to close.

The governor explained that the state has the power through emergency orders to fine those who don’t comply.

“So there can be civil and potentially criminal penalties and licensure issues related to folks who don’t comply,” said Gov. Lujan Grisham.



Open 7 days a week 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Enchanted Forest offers 33 km of 12 – 16 ft. wide groomed, signed, and patrolled trails for both classic and freestyle skiing. You'll also find 15 km devoted to snowshoes as well as 5km of trails to ski with your dog. Enjoy access to miles and miles of backcountry trails!


Summer yurt rentals are available now for reservations starting April 29. Hiking and mountain biking are always available on the Enchanted Forest trails, no fee required.

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.”
