"The ascent of Ski Apache may be the most spectacular in New Mexico. A high altitude start and along a narrow road much of the route (and poor pavement in places as of late 2011), the grade is challenging and you ride over multiple switchbacks, some of which contain double digit grade. Through thick trees over part of the route, big mountain views are available near the top as well. The listed climb ends as a right hand bend with a gravel parking area at an overlook on the left. You can continue to ride along very shallow/flat and then descending terrain to the actual ski area. Ski Apache is a challenging descent as well." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 202.)

I did this climb in September when Ski Apache was closed so my experience may be atypical, but traffic was light although there was an area of construction near the top. No part of the climb is too bad if you are accustomed to the altitude. The road condition is alright so be careful on the descent.
