Owner description: 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.

Let's understand one thing right from the start, Taos is about the skiing first and foremost. If you want a vacation where you can show off your new clothes or bag, head to Aspen or Vail. If you want to lay around a hotel and have room service breakfast, then head to the spa, then ski for an hour before... More

Overall, this place is a great ski destination. The runs are challenging, not horribly crowded, lots of variety and has a small mountain feel. The snow was a bit packed down when I went but not icy. Only remark is to bring cash. While most restaurants will take cards, cash is king. Will definitely be going back.

if you are staying in Taos you can catch the 'Chili Line' which is the City run bus for $1 each way. Yes, $1 each way. Takes about 30 to get up there. I found Taos Ski Valley to be amazing & I prefer the runs around 7 & 8. All runs were groomed prior to opening at 9am during... More

If you are looking for that small base area with an alpine village feel... well this is it! But that doesn't mean this is not a great mountain! There is sure plenty of terrains to challenge any ability levels!

Two great days of skiing one with 8 inches of new snow, one in bright sun shine. Varied terrains for every level. When I was reading the status of the mountain it said that 6 of 13 lifts were open and that was a bit disappointing to read. But it's really not that bad because lifts are doubled up between...

We spent a week at TSV and enjoyed hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing. We ate at a different place each evening and thought the service and people were very nice and helpful. It's a small place and very low key, but that was part of the attraction.

It was a warm, snowy day. Deep powder and plenty of it. What a spot. I couldn't believe hardly anyone was there!!! It was as though we owned the resort. So beautiful and so exhilarating.

I have loved Taos Ski Valley since I first started skiing 35 years ago. It is not crowded and NOT FOR BEGINNERS. My son and I are both avid skiers and love the steepness of Taos and the amazing number of challenging blacks and blues. We were treated so well by everyone working on the mountain. We rented out skis... More

We visited Taos Ski Valley for a week and skied here for one of the days so far. For the price compared to Keystone where we typically go, you really can't beat it. They have plenty of runs and very little to no lines. Pros: Reasonably priced compared to Keystone and other well known resorts No lines Shuttles from the... More

TSV is truly a great ski destination. A big mountain with varied terrain, it is seldom crowded. Although it has terrain to challenge the most expert skier, there are also many runs for intermediate skiers. Sunny days are common in this southern Rockies location. TSV has the further advantage of being close to Taos.
