Gondola at Ski ApachePhoto by Gina Kelley

Come up to the top of the world (or at least southern New Mexico) and witness the panoramic vistas from the top of Ski Apache or be inspired by Sierra Blanca Peak towering to 12,000 feet above sea level.  Look for wildlife on the ride up and down the gondola and relax in the cool temperatures of Sierra Blanca Peak.

Lunch and picnic tables are available at the Yurt on top of the mountain.

For extra fun, rent a mountain bike at Ski Apache, take it up the mountain with you on the gondola, and ride down the mountain on their new moutain bike trail.
