As the guidebook says, you're only looking at one thirtieth of the ski area. This is probably my second favorite ski area in the U.S. (Sun Valley is No. 1). The downsides are you'll pretty much have to stay in nearby Taos, but it' a very cool town. At the end of the drive from Taos is TSV (Taos Ski... More

I spent two weeks in the Taos Ski Valley for a professional conference - not for skiing. For the summer visitor: the Black Diamond Coffee counter is open and was the only source of good coffee I was able to find. The ski lift runs most days (weather permitting) and is quite the thrill if you've never ridden one back... More

Nothing beats the charm of New Mexico and Taos Ski Valley is no exception. The mountain is superb and the powder snow is absolutely heavenly. The skiing is world class with over 100 trails for varying degrees of experience. I really enjoy that a good amount of the trails are several miles long, which makes for a great run. The... More

We found our way to Taos Ski Valley from Taos. I say that becaue when I called the number to find out what we could do there in the summer, they were kinda clueless. There seemed to be a lot of construction going on in the valley. The lift was not in service that day. We did get hold of... More

This is big time skiing folks! Taos is an awesome resort...its a bit of a drive up the mountain and out of the way to get to it...stay here if you can...but this is an awesome ski resort! It really doesn't get any better...anywhere! Oh...and there's some great shopping and restaurants, bars, etc...in the surrounding village! Total fun!

Great ski valley. So laid back. No fee for parking. Lift tickets are a reasonable price ($75 as of writing this). Great ski school. The terrain is steep, but if you can ski Taos, you can ski just about anywhere.

For world class skiing (particularly if you like it steep) without the crowds and ritz, TSV can't be beat. It is not the place to go if night life is a focus but there are a number of nice restaurants and bars and usually there is some live music at one or another- it just won't necessarily go till all...

What a great place to hide out during the summer months; reduced rates, good food, horseback riding, excellent hiking, chairlift rides and only 20 minutes from downtown Taos, Rio Grande Gorge, balloon rides and more!

I have been coming to Taos Ski Valley for 8 years and have done 9 ski better weeks with the ski school. And I have skied at Vail, Jackson, Beaver Creek, Deer Valley, Park City, Snowbird and Alta, and lots of places in the East. But I can without hesitation say that Taos has terrain as good as or better... More
