I've skied Ski Santa Fe for several years now and it was my local ski mountain during my 3 years living in Santa Fe back in the early-90's.
The area is mid-sized at 660 acres but has a decent mix of terrain for the size. Most is geared towards beginners & intermediate skiers with some advance & slightly less expert terrain. It is actually a great little mountain to improve your intermediate skills. Thunderbird was a favorite of mine to learn bump skiing as it slowly gets steeper from top to bottom. The groomers do a good job with many of the main trails kept in good condition.
Weather is usually great but the area gets packed on holidays, especially President's Day weekend. NM snow is great when you get it - nice & light just like CO & UT.
Lift improvements over the past few years have made access at Ski Santa Fe much better (upgrade of the Millenium Triple, removal of the Poma, replacement of the beginner tow lift with a magic carpet for beginners, & a load conveyor on the high speed quad). Ticket prices are OK for what you get ($60 adult, $40 kids all day) & the ski school is very good. On-mountain dining is limited to 2 locations, both of which are jam packed at lunchtime. My family usually packs a lunch to save money but seating is still limited.
For out of towners, lodging is in Santa Fe, which is more geared towards adults than kids, so you'll have to drive up to the ski area from town (about 20min to 30min). If you want a ski resort destination for a multi-day trip in the region, you'll be happier with Taos (NM), Durango (SW CO) or Telluride (SW CO).
Ski Santa Fe is a great little mountain for locals & for a day trip diversion for families staying in Santa Fe. Unfortunately, it doesn't have enough terrain to hold up as a ski destination for multi-day trips.
