Great teachers!

Short of needing some serious redesign for pick up and drop off from the Junior Elite I kids, my 5 year old was conquering the mountain by the 4th day thanks to Eli!

My children have taken ski school there for four years now and have learned a lot. They were short staffed this spring break which meant larger class sizes and slower learning.

We'd come to Taos in the 80s and 90s and came back again this year. The ski School is just fabulous and you'll ski better no matter what your skills after a week in school. While Taos has a reputation as a skiers mountain, it offers something for everyone of any level. What impressed us so much is that after... More

Aiden - our boys' ski instructor - was fantastic. A really good mix of supportive, patient and demanding. The non-teaching staff were, for the most part, really on the ball. Our boys can get a little rowdy (they are just 3- and 5-years-old and can get a bit excited). But, the staff was firm while keeping things patient. I would... More

Awesome visit for our 12 & 6 year old girls learning beginner board and ski respectively. Both did great in three days and the staff is so patient and friendly.

This is my third visit to TSV and each time I have taken lessons. The instructors are awesome and have a lot of experience, I skied areas that I wouldn't have skied on my own. The instructors really pushed me to be a better and safer skier, had a great time learning the new terrain.

Waste of time and money! Too big of a group at one time. Instructor paid more attention to those who knew how to ski and not so much to those who didn't.

My 14 yo daughter and 12 yo son, both comfortable green/blue skiers wanted to ski when my husband and I were done. Because of the more challenging runs at TSV I enrolled them in the full day Junior Elite 3 program so they would have adult supervision on the mountain. I was a little concerned that my 14 yo would... More

My 6-year-old son had never snowboarded before our most recent trip to Taos, so we signed him and his little buddy, who was the same age and had also never boarded, up for two days of ski school. You do get a slight price cut if you pay for multiple days at one time. Be prepared at check-in for organized... More

classes varied in size, but the instructor was tuned in to each participant, and I felt I gained a great deal from his attention, and improved my skills.
