About Southwest Skiing and Snowboarding

9,027 ft Average Base Elevation
10,693 ft Average Peak Elevation
1,643 ft Average Vertical Drop

The Southwestern Region of the United States, comprised of Arizona and New Mexico, has some of the most interesting and enjoyable skiing and snowboarding in the United States. The snow-covered mountains often are dramatically juxtaposed against a desert background, but the skiing and snowboarding is awesome for experts and beginners alike. When El Nino winters bring the storms, things can get very deep and resorts in the regions are very comfortable with making their own snow when mother nature doesn't cooperate. The Southwest Region has a total of 13 ski resorts which combine for 625 ski and snowboard trails available for you to shred. The average vertical drop for ski resorts in the Southwest is 1590 feet.
