Current Events

Our meetings are held at 7:00 pm on the first Tuesday of each month from April to October (meetings are not held November through March) at the Sandia Ranger Station in Tijeras, featuring an informative presentation on subjects pertinent to our mission.

Next Friends Meeting: Tuesday, May, 2017 at 7 pm

Speakers: Guy Jackson and Ben Abruzzo, Jr.

Topic: New Top of Tram Restaurant and Proposed Mountain Coaster at Sandia Peak

We will learn plans and current status of the new restaurant project. The focus of the project is to improve the physical aspects of the facility, visual setting, dining experience, holding capacity and serve as a gateway to the forest. The new restaurant will host approximately 160 seats. While the new building will not change substantially, significant improvements to the amenities will enhance the guest experience at the top of the mountain.
We will also learn plans for a proposed Mountain Coaster to provide a unique, multi-season, short duration, experience for guests who have ridden the Tram and are spending time at the summit of Sandia Peak. The Mountain Coaster would begin and end near the top terminal of Chairlift #2, near the Tram terminal next to the new restaurant.
Guy Jackson, PE, is Senior Project Engineer & Project Administrator; Ben Abruzzo Jr. is General Manager, Sandia Peak Ski Area & Ski Santa Fe
