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.

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

Our experience in Taos ski valley was good. This was our third trip to a ski resort and our first one for my teenage son to snowboard or ski. The mountain is beautiful. Lots of fun advanced trails and a great ski school. Not a lot to do in the village but a fabulous coffee and dessert shop with great... More

As an avid CO skiier I was not sure what to expect for skiing conditions in New Mexico. So glad my husband and I decided to try something new! The scenery is gorgeous. The weather was perfect (although a little more snow would have made the conditions overall great.) The trails are definitely tough and we did not expect so... More

We visited Taos ski valley twice in last two year and really loved it. We loved this as winter ski spot. The road and area is also attractive,

We went for an impromptu ski weekend. It was a great ski experience! Skied my first double black diamond! We hadn't been to Taos in a while, and I had forgotten how challenging it is! The runs were well groomed, and we found some fun tree runs. There's a new lift that goes to the top of Kachina Peak for... More

The 3 out of 5 of the times I came here to ski, I was insulted by a Lift Ticket scanner, a ticket booth sales person, AND the information desk person. I gathered that there is just an overall trend of condescending attitudes among the staff at the Taos Ski Valley. It's either "pay - or go away." As a... More

If you don't want the Vail experience, you appreciate the old ski town genre, friendly people and a great variety of ski terrain Taos is for you! I've been skiing all over north america since 1973 and this was one of the best mountains I've had the pleasure to make a few turns on. Three truly outstanding ski days -... More
