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.

Family ski trip on spring break

Nice slopes are only a short drive from downtown. The skiing was great in the morning until about noon and then the temperature caused it to be a little icy in the afternoons.

SINCE IT WAS NOT SKI SEASON, we came here anyway, just for a look-see. Except for final construction on a massive new hotel, it was a ghost town. Most shops were closed. The big parking load was quite full but we figured it was mostly construtruction men. There was no shopping to be done. To be fair, place probably comes... More

Lift #4 was open for summer rides. The views are spectacular! From streams to small waterfalls, to Wheeler Peak, the ride was relaxing and we'll worth the round trip. The Bavarian Restaurant is at the base of this lift. We didn't eat there, but the food looked really good. We were told by the lift operators this area gets 15'... More

My husband and I were in Taos for the weekend to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We are around 60 and very actively physically. We both work out at the gym several times a week and are very fit. We were looking for some hikes that were moderately challenging but didn’t require an entire day or camping out. We talked with... More

I'm an upper intermediate snowboarder. I mostly like groomers and wide open blues. I was told by many people that Taos is an advanced mountain. While I agree with that statement, I also think It would be unfair to say its TOO advanced. There is plenty to offer for beginners and novices on the mountain. The last time I was... More

This is an excellent mountain for skiers. I've been skiing here since I was a kid. It's such a great little community of passionate outdoors men and women. It's not over crowded like Vail and Aspen. If you want to REALLY ski, come to Taos. If you want to wear fashionable clothes and enjoy a "scence" this is not the... More

I've been skiing since the early 70's and this place is totally stuck in the 70's! Yes they have some challenging runs (we could see them even though it was summer), but the buildings, the layout, condos, all of it...YUCK! We were there to check it out prior to our planned winter visit and to hike the trail to Williams... More

I love this mountain during the Winter as well as Summer. For skiing it can be intimidating for beginners, I would recommend skiing Red River or Angel Fire if your just learning and then coming here once you feel comfortable. There are many trails as you should plan on at least 2 or 3 days to fully explore this mountain.... More

Wonderful trails, great restaurant at the top, and a very scenic drive. You just can't miss this if you're in the area! Be sure to stop in Arroyo Seco on the way up, great shops and ice cream!

Good atmosphere and and great terrain. But the slopes didn't feel very balanced in planning. Either you were on extreme black diamonds or long barely sloping runs around the mountain. It was hard for me to find fast, hard runs. It was also just plain hard to find your way around. I rarely found the terrain parks. It was also... More
