Taos ski resort is big with plenty of terrain to satisfy anybody (greens, blues, blacks, and expert terrain). It doesn't have any high speed lifts (yet) but the ones it does have are in good shape and plenty good enough. I think the family that has owned the resort for the last 60 years recently sold it so I expect... More

This was our first time to Ski Valley and it was tough but great. There were plenty of staff and they were incredibly friendly everywhere. So Laid Back!

I would HIGHLY recommend this hill for nearly EVERYONE! If your an expert, they have runs that will challenge and wear you out! If you or your family want to learn to ski, these instructors are by far the best we have seen! We booked a private lesson for two intermediate adult skiers and a ten year old on his... More

The ski trip to Taos last month was one of the best ever. There was plenty of base and it was the first time ice pellets rained down on us the whole day. The third and last day was a real challenge because of the heavy snow that fell all night. Small children was getting stuck in the deep snow.... More

We've skied just about eveywhere in New Mexico, and nothing against the smaller resorts, but Taos wins again this spring break. Long runs, Short lines, great food. What else could you want. Staff are always eager to help, but not overbaring. Another plus is the staff checking out rentals. They know what they are doing. Don't waste your $$$ in... More

This was my families 4th year to Taos. It's a tough mountain but nice and small. GREAT staff. Impressed with the kids ski school supervisor - she gave my daughter a free full day lesson because she was not advanced up to the higher level ski school like she should have been. My husband and kids love it there. Food... More

You go to TSV for skiing this is not Vail or Park City. NO night life, no shopping, very limited restaurants. But what skiing.

50% of these runs are expert, 25% are intermediate and 25% are beginner, however even some of the intermediate should probably be upgraded to expert. Good snowmobile trips too!

Wow - I have been skiing here for over 20 years, and it never gets old. I have skied all over the world, and always love coming "home" to Taos. Everyone talks about their snow, but I can assure you that NOBODY ANYWHERE has snow like Taos. Never a lift line; great prices; boarders now welcomed. What's better than this?... More

My 4 year old and I went to Taos 2-16-14 for a weekend trip and absolutley loved it. I am a novice skier of Green/Blue runs and was a little weary after reading the reviews here, but I think its all very subjective. The runs were very long and most of them, albeit steep, were very wide. No menacing traversing... More
