Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area

Friday, March 22: We received 3-5 inches of snow on top of an EXCELLENT base — possibly the best we’ve ever had this late in March. Skiing is powdery today but expect SPRING skiing conditions most days — hard and fast mornings (unless it doesn’t freeze overnight), softer mid-morning, slushy mid-day, fast late afternoon. if the sun is shining, spring skiing can be GLORIOUS!

Dog Days (bring your pooch on the main ski trails) are today, March 22, through Sunday, March 31.

Everything in the retail store is 40% off!

Open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day until March 31.

We stop selling trail passes and rentals at 3 p.m.

If the last skier or snowshoer has left by 3 p.m., we leave, too.

Call 575-754-6112 and we’ll get back to you!

Note: The last 2/10 mile from Highway 38 to EFXC is accessible via AWD or 4WD only. Call 575-754-6112 as you head up Bobcat Pass to arrange for a shuttle ride. Please use caution when climbing or ascending the hill to the EFXC parking lot.
