Snow Canyon Ski Resort seems to be owned and operated by the Town of Cloudcroft, New Mexico. There's very little on the web about Snow Canyon, other than this is the place where skiers go to get away from other skiers. The terrain park also seems to be well known. And it looks like Snow Canyon is an intimate family-oriented ski resort that offers more skiing for your dollar than any other New Mexico ski area. If you don't want to ski, there is a separate tubing hill with its own lift.

Snow Canyon is also known as "Ski Cloudcroft."" As Ski Cloudcroft they used to offer night skiing on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays until 10:00 PM.
