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 have been coming to Taos for 9 years. I try to do at least one ski better week every year. And every year I am completely amazed just how good the ski school is. It is reputedly the best in the nation and I have experienced nothing that would make me doubt that. I have had ten different instructors... More

of all my hikes in nm, the one at mile marker 11 across from old cabin was the best. also continue up road (driving) to twining road above the ski area when the snow is gone.

I had heard much about the steep terrain at Taos and had wanted to ski here for years. We finally had our chance this spring and Taos delivered as promised! My boyfriend and I are pretty good skiers (we live in Colorado) and we thoroughly enjoyed the steep tree runs, hike-to ridges and of course, we took full advantage of... More

Taos is new four letter word for steep! That's what my friend told me almost 10 years ago. It took me this long to finally ski in Taos. Oh boy he was right and why did I wait so long to come here? I went to enjoy spring skiing last weekend. Lift ticket was discounted and I really enjoyed steep... More

I decided to hike Highline Ridge and do Juarez this afternoon 3/26/15. I had just skied Kachina and the moguls were at least doable. Jaurez never softened. I dropped in ok but about 40% down the hard, craggy conditions got to me and I fell and lost my pole, helmut, goggles, and prescription glasses. I traveled down about four moguls... More

I've skied most major resorts and this was my first time at Taos ski valley. To me this resort doesn't compare to the the major resorts. So much of the terrain is expert and if the snow conditions aren't good you can pretty much forget skiing most of the mountain. What's left are a limited number of blues and greens... More

Had a private ski lesson for my family. Had never on skiing before, the instructor are very professional - and the whole family started to ski by ourselves after 2 hours of lesson! Awesome terrain for beginner as well as for advanced skier. Our kids loved the snow tubing as well. Great place, great restaurant with a reasonable price.

Taos has awesome terrain and even better snow. I was there the day after it dumped a bunch of snow at the start of March. There is plenty of mountain to keep you busy. Lots of terrain, including some easily accessible hike-to bowls. The staff is friendly and the location is awesome. Love it here.

Great 45 degree weather and lots of snow still on the ground. The resort was super busy but everyone was great that we met.

I'm an intermediate skier and I loved Taos! I especially loved the back as there were two good lifts that went to greens and blues but I have to say the blues here were harder than most blues I've seen elsewhere. At the bottom of the back was a great German restaurant that I recommend. The front side of the... More
