Monterreal (Spanish pronunciation: [montereˈal]) is a small ski resort situated in the municipality of Arteaga, in the southeast of the Coahuila state, Mexico, located 40 minutes from Saltillo and 90 minutes from Monterrey. It is the only ski center in Mexico.

The Monterreal ski center has two runs. The main slope has a run of 230 m (754.6 ft). A separate 45 m long slope was specially designed for beginners and toboggans.

The main slope has a spring-box type drag lift and the teaching/play area has a conveyor type lift. The main track has a slope of about 20 degrees. In terms of difficulty, it can be considered as a blue run.

It is generally possible to ski between December and January, with natural snow.
