“This is a bit of local eccentricity that is low key and fun. Great for kids of all ages.”
“There are a _lot_ of ways to experience the Sandias; find a way to do something up there. It's a magical place. Hiking La Luz is a good choice, if it's not too hot out and you're a strong hiker. There are many, many other hiking and biking options, and taking the Tram to the top is fun. (The food at the top isn't great, but the views make up for it.)”
“Nice winter ski area. You can take the tram to the top, ski all day, and then ride the tram down. Another option is to take the 45 minute scenic drive to the back of the mountain and ski.”
