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.

It was August and we took the chairlift up to see the sights and take pictures. Very nice people running the lift and beautiful mountains. Nothing much to do up there except to take pictures, but that's what we did. Very memorable.

While Taos Ski Valley isn't the enormity of many CO locations, it has plenty of great runs with all levels of skiing. And, the best is that it doesn't have the ridiculous lift lines of CO.

Taos is a great ski area with all levels of terrain, although it's more suited for advanced to experts due to the great hike-to and glade skiing. It can also be a little treacherous at the end of the day near the base because every trail dumps you into one short but narrow and icy pitch.

These comments reflect our experience during our August visit. Certainly ski season is a whole different animal. From what we could tell during our visit to the "base", there's just nothing to really see or do unless you're going to hike around the area. The scenery is stunning as it should be. We did not visit the area where they... More

We visited my cousin and we hiked up the trail at Taos Ski Valley! Awesome views as you travel from 10k elevation to a little over 11k. Great exercise with awesome views!

We went to Taos Ski Valley while visiting Taos this week. We took chair 4 up to the top and the kids enjoyed the ride up and being able to run around. I am giving it 4 stars more for the drive up to the ski resort from Taos more than the chair ride itself. It was a good time... More

I have been to Taos several times and have always had an excellent experience. The ski week, lodging, food and lessons is the absolute best way to ski Taos.

This was my first trip to Taos Ski Valley. I went on a long weekend ski trip with a few buddies and had a great time. The mountain was very diverse and there was more runs for average/novice skiers than first meets the eye. There were a good amount of green/blue runs and also plenty of challenging black and black...

A good 2 1/2 miles past the main compound at Taos Ski Valley, at an altitude of 10,200' with snow on the ground and a brand new ski lift steps from the inn, what's not to love about this place??? Other than the fact we stayed at the Bavarian during the off season, this would be the perfect place for... More
