The Ski Resort of Sandia Peak, NM (not AZ) is already calling it quits for the 2012-2013 ski season. The resort has only received 32 inches of snowfall this season resulting in a base depth of just 14″. It has been such a dismal season that only the resort’s beginner lift and slope were able to open at all this year.
Sandia Peak typically has a shorter season than most ski areas but this season the resort will be closing a full month ahead of schedule.
The resort will remain at the ready to reopen the ski facility if the area receives a late season dump but the long range forecast is not looking too good.
