Ojo Caliente is best place in New Mexico for Apres Ski

Soaking at Ojo is a great after ski experience.

"New Mexico is known for its dry powder and high altitude ski hills and this season is shaping up nicely with two major storms in the forecast," said Wendi Gelfound, director of marketing.

Sixteen inches of snow fell in less than 24 hours at Ski Santa Fe this past Sunday, and 13 inches fell at Taos Ski Valley, a good start to a great winter ski season in northern New Mexico, with another storm expected within the week. Ojo Caliente Mineral Resort & Springs is located at the center of New Mexico’s winter wonderland—only 51 miles from Taos Ski Valley and 68 miles from Ski Santa Fe—and is prepared to make a ski vacation extra special with a 20% discount on soaking and lodging.

This 144-year old legendary resort features four soothing, sulfur-free geothermal mineral waters in 11 pools, including three private outdoor pools with kiva fireplaces, plus a eucalyptus steam and sauna to melt away those muscle aches and soothe body and soul after an exhilarating day on the slopes. Ojo Caliente invites guests to simply bring their lift ticket or season pass from any New Mexico ski resort from the 2012/2013 season and get 20% off entry to the springs or their overnight stay.

Lodging options range from the Historic Hotel to charming cottages, enchanting suites with kiva fireplaces, and private homes. Guests are encouraged to combine soaking in the hot springs with spa treatments for an ultimate relaxing experience. The diverse spa menu offers a full array of restorative therapies, including nurturing massage and hydrating wraps, scrubs, and body treatments.

Ojo is an ideal après ski destination for northern New Mexico ski resorts, with its proximity to Taos Ski Valley (recently recognized as being one of the best value ski destinations) and Santa Fe. It is also close to numerous other winter playgrounds. Ojo is only 64 miles to Angel Fire Resort, 69 miles to the mountain town of Red River, a mere 49 miles to Pajarito Mountain Ski Area near Los Alamos, and 57 to the Valles Caldera, one of the area’s best kept secrets for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

Ski, Soak and Stay at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa: Bring your lift ticket or season pass from any New Mexico ski resort and get 20% off Springs’ entry or any lodging unit (one discount per person). Offer is valid 7 days a week, excluding holiday periods, and is valid from December 1, 2012 - April 30, 2013. Visit for details.

The secluded sanctuary that is Ojo Caliente is tucked into a cottonwood dotted river valley just north of Santa Fe and just south of Taos, NM. Opened in 1868, Ojo is one of the oldest natural health resorts in the United States, and the only hot springs in the world with four unique, sulfur-free healing mineral waters: iron, arsenic, soda and lithia. Deemed sacred by the Native Pueblo tribes of Northern New Mexico, Ojo has been a gathering place for diverse groups for thousands of years.

Ojo is both historic and fresh with eclectic charm in a relaxed and tranquil environment. It boasts a rejuvenating full-service spa, utilizing a range of Native American- and East Indian-inspired therapies, which incorporate wild crafted and indigenous herbs, flowers and essential oils. The resort consists of 48 beautifully appointed New Mexico style lodging units, including enchanting suites, charming cottages, the Historic Hotel and private homes. The Artesian Restaurant serves up fresh, inventive, locally-influenced foods, as well as international dishes. Lighter fare, plus an extensive selection of local and imported wine and beer are available in the Wine Bar.
