Uphill Access

Uphill users are considered skiers under the New Mexico Skier Safety Act and are required to adhere to the laws stated in the act and the specific items located within the skier’s responsibility code. The Sandia Peak uphill access policy is intended to educate users about the risks of these activities. 



There are guidelines that all uphill users must follow to promote safety and to minimize conflicts between mountain operations including but not limited to: grooming operations, snowmobile traffic, other vehicles, downhill skiers/riders, and any other activities that might be taking place at any time on the mountain, day and night.

Please stay to the side of trails and follow the designated uphill routes (Cibola & Double Eagle).
