Casa Escondida means "hidden house" in Spanish and, for this B&B, the name certainly fits. The adobe inn is tucked away amid desert brush, colorful wildflowers, and views of the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Fodor's praised it as "intimate and peaceful."
The inn resembles a Spanish villa with its wooden viga rafters and tiled floors. Inside, guest rooms are decorated with antique furnishings, and some are outfitted with fireplaces. In the brightly lit Sun room, wide french doors lead to a private patio that looks out on a butterfly garden. The Wildflower room houses a clawfoot tub.
Casa Escondida is less than an hour from Bandelier National Monument, known for its ancient dwellings and petroglyph drawings. In winter, you can easily reach nearby ski resorts from the inn.
A premier resort with 113 trails and a peak elevation of 12,481 feet, Taos Ski Valley was conceived at an even higher elevation: in the sky above the New Mexico peaks. While flying his Cessna 170 from Santa Fe Ski Basin to a Southern Colorado resort where he worked, Ernie Blake would scour the peaks for an area that could suit his dream of opening his own ski resort. He eventually found the right spot?a snow basin so perfectly formed that he at first thought it was an "optical illusion," he reported in Ski Pioneers?and, in 1955, he and his family began grooming the terrain that would eventually become a world-class resort.
With a base elevation of 9,207 feet, the resort makes it difficult for storm systems to pass by without dumping some fresh powder. The mountain records an annual snowfall of 305 inches without sacrificing consistently navigable conditions; the sun shines on the slopes more than 300 days each year. The slopes present skiable terrain for all levels, though they skew towards more experienced skiers, comprising 50% expert-level terrain and 50% suitable for beginners and intermediates.
In the summer, the melting snow gives way to a new landscape for outdoor recreation. The same slopes host heart-stopping mountain bike races, serviced by the lifts, as well as a disc-golf course. Scenic chairlift rides take guests gliding to the top of the mountain, where they can enjoy views of Wheeler Peak, West Basin Ridge, and the colorful blotches of wildflowers. Picnic tables await at the summit, providing a venue for alfresco dining or practicing Bigfoot calls.
Thanks to Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort, northern New Mexico has been a haven for family-friendly skiing since earth's very first snowfall back in 1952. Here, five lifts take guests up the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, where they can soar down more than 40 trails that range from easy routes to challenging steeps and tree skiing. Away from these well-groomed trails, skiers and snowboarders catch air at the resort's terrain parks, procure equipment at the rental shop, and a full-service ski school prepares novices for their first time on the slopes. Sipapu treats its guests to ample freebies to help keep visits as affordable as possible. Instructors give first-timers complimentary lessons, and adult lift tickets include free lodging on select dates. Those and other specials helped Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort land a spot on Sunset magazine's list of Favorite Family Venues in December 2013.
