The 2012-2013 ski season at Ski Apache in Southern New Mexico will open Dec. 7th, according to officials. The ski resort usually opens during the Thanksgiving holiday.
"Last year was a record-breaking year on the mountain and the effects of the Little Bear Fire will not stop us from having another strong season--, " said Frizzell Frizzell Jr., chief operating officer for Ski Apache.
Officials say the Mescalero Apache Tribe has dedicated $15 million to new chair lifts.
Once it's open, Ski Apache will remain open seven days per week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, click: www.SkiApache.com
