Description:

Located at the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains in Northern New Mexico,...

Located at the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains in Northern New Mexico, Taos Ski Valley is a world famous destination for riders and skiers of all ability levels. Taos is primarily know for its steeps but offers beginner & intermediate trails off the top of every single chair lift. For the advanced to expert skier/rider Taos offers some of the most challenging and varied terrain in the country, especially off its hike to ridges. The family vibe is also embodied in the quaint village of Taos Ski Valley. Not overdeveloped the resort offers a simple night life, lots of dining options, with everything in close proximity. If you are looking for more than skiing/riding check out the historic town of Taos just 18 miles down the road for a true vacation destination.

My thoughts after a week at TSV valley was...good experience, but bad mountain. There are so many other choices that are far better. Details This is a relatively small mountain, so the run choices are limited. We skied the entire mountain in a day, including Kachina Peak, Al's Run, some glades, the NASTAR run, most of the blues, and at... More

Almost no waits on a holiday weekend and plenty of snow. Great for families on long nice easy runs. Staff are nice and helpful and there is plenty of good infrastructure nearby for all needs to make for a great time.

So after going to Taos "forever," all of a sudden they don't offer a discount for dependents. Yo, Taos, believe it or not, families serve also. Other parks honor the military family; we'll go there. Oh, and I tried to call about this and Dave never got back to me-customer service blows!

If you are renting equipment just know that there are several shops to rent from, i would suggest renting from the shop next to lift ticket purchase window otherwise you are carrying equipment and walking in ski boots up and down stairs for a bit of distance. This is a cool little valley with shops, good food and drink options.... More

We had a wonderful time. We took ski lessons. Kids learned a lot. The 4 year old decided he wanted to snowboard. They were accommodating and allowed him to stay later. Fed them all! They loved it. We tubed. That was a blast. Kids didn't want to leave. The escalator back up the hill was nice for the adults. We... More

Hi blake515, we agree, the people and the personalities of Taos are super unique, and the drive from Denver is quiet compared to I70. There are a lot of amazing things about Taos and that's why we love it too, no secret there. Thanks for leaving a review, and we hope to see you back here again! - Skylar K... More

When they get snow, which has happened a lot in the past few years, It's hard to beat Taos for the ski enthusiast. Terrain that will challenge the most expert of skiers, and plenty for the Intermediate and beginner too. The awesome beauty, short lift lines, reasonable prices, and friendliness make Taos a special place.

We had a wonderful ski weekend in Taos Ski Valley. This mountain is better suited to skiers, not snowboarders. The mountain is also better suited to expert skiers. Most of the black runs had mogels.
