S is for Sandia and Skiing! @AprilA2Z #AtoZChallenge

The beautiful Sandia Mountains border Albuquerque on the eastern side. While Albuquerque itself is at about 5,500 feet in elevation, Sandia Crest is its highest point at 10,678 feet, and the mountains provide a lot to do.

Hiking is a popular activity, and from the Crest, you have breathtaking views of Albuquerque and beyond. There are over twenty trails, and they range from easy to very difficult, so there's plenty to satisfy every hiker.

Sandia Peak is also known for its skiing. The ski area is on the eastern side of the mountain, and is a short drive for those with the urge to enjoy some winter sports.

  1. Beautiful!! I'm thinking "T" Tram???


  2. I've always fancied learning to ski, but I'm so clumsy it would be a recipe for disaster!

    1. My best advice? Go for a week and spring for personal lessons. Then you can learn at your own pace. :-) There's nothing like going down the mountain in fresh powder and snow falling around you. So peaceful!
