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.

I've skied Taos off and on since I was a kid and every time I go I wonder why I went back. The grooming capacity is very limited, the recreational skiing is very limited and on weekends you take your life in your hands with...More

The mountain is still beautiful, the runs are still great (although the snow has been lacking this year). The construction of new lodging at facilities at the base is the story this year, huge project that has affected parking, etc. Fortunately the shuttle system does...More

This is such a fantastic ski area on all levels. From long, steep runs to wide open groomers, fantastic views and the absolute best staff anywhere. The Katchina lift will take your breath away and the short hike to the ridge is well worth the...More

Ask if you can ride the lift up and back down. Employees do it alll the time.

None of us took lessons. I would suggest 1/2 day lessons if you are a decent skier, but that's just my opinion. I don't have patience to be tied to an instructor for the entire day.
