Pros: Unbelievable scenery. Set in the mountains of New Mexico. Very easy to find your way with good signage and clearly defined fairways. Most holes are down, up or across the ski runs.

Very challenging. Water in play on a few holes and lots of elevation change. Fun to throw down the hill for some huge shots. Play across creek on hole 2 from elevated tee, and #4 to an elevated basket down a tunnel of trees.

Set of three tee pads for every hole level the playing field for beginners. Scorecard/ Map available for $3 from resort store along with discs and souvenirs.
Cons: Thick and tall douglas firs border the ski runs and will grab your disc. Sometimes very high up. My group lost two discs when we played.

Course is kind of in the middle of nowhere, so it takes a little while to get to but is well worth the drive.

Other than that this course is sick !!!!!
Other Thoughts: This is the best course I have ever played, both because of its shear beauty and hole design/flow.
Enjoyed it immensely. If you are a hardcore discer like myself and anywhere near here you have to go.

Pros: Nice mountain setting on a ski slope. A river runs through it. Air is usually cool and fresh. Course is well laid out and trail is easy to follow
Cons: lots of elevation changes. The trees around the river seem to grab disc out of the air. Sometimes they can get stuck very high.
Other Thoughts: Resort manager is good about returning disk and fun to play with.

Pros: Beautiful scenery with huge trees and a stream.
Fairways are up, down, and across ski runs.
Nice mix of holes with monstrous elevation changes.
Inexpensive lodging/camping available on site
Picnic area restrooms and store with friendly staff near hole one.
Cons: Remoteness of course
Other Thoughts: Tremendously fun course. Come prepared for quick weather changes. The hike is strenuous --- bring water.

Pros: Awesome course. Very scenic with huge elevation changes. The holes are in and around, up and down the ski runs. Very fun.
Cons: You need to be in decent shape because you are in for some serious walking up and down the runs.
Other Thoughts: This course is really a pleasure to play. Lots of hilly shots, some water, loads of trees.
