Winter at the High Plains

Just because summer is over is no reason that the fun should end, and it never does here at the High Plains Drift Inn! Join us for a horse ride in the snow or toast your toes by a big fire. One nice thing about our dry climate is that if the sun comes out even a winter day can be quite pleasant. So we offer horse riding and skeet shooting year round.

In addition to activities on the ranch we are also located in a great place for skiing. There are three downhill ski resorts near us. Wolf Creek, Monark and Taos ski resorts. There are also several nice places to cross country ski in the area. If you would like private ski lessons we can meet you on the mountain to sharpen your skills.

The Great National Sand Dunes is also a nice place to visit in the winter with lots of good hills to sled down and the Ice formations at Zapata falls are especially nice.
