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.

Ambiance is rustic at best (rural is probably a better word); There is no gondola and there really isn't a lodge or ski-in/out accommodation (not like breck or vail). Being in Taos feels more like Snowbird vs the Colorado resorts. Also, the locals don't really like outsiders. That said, if you can live with those things your going to get... More

Taos ski resort is a terrible place to snowboard! The resort only wants your money. They do not invest in the mountain to improve the experience. All the runs are left ungroomed, the lifts are 1970s slow, and the terrain parks are a joke! The mountain is really small, so do not believe the percentage of expert runs, additionally their...

Love love love Taos Ski Valley. Convenient to lifts, nice staff, beautiful groomed trails. One trip we stayed at Powderhorn with the ski in ski out package and once we stayed in Taos. Loved both trips.

We chose Taos for our first foray into skiing with 2 teenagers. The cost was much lower than most other places we researched for 4 brand new skiers who needed lessons. The staff were amazing and the lessons (snowboarding and skiing) were fantastic. There are a ton of different ski runs for varying levels of skill and we loved the... More

If I could give 3.5 stars, I would. The good: Great terrain that is relatively uncrowded. The bad: The lifts are old and slow. This used to be a ski-only resort and some of the staff (far from all) have maintained the snooty attitude associated with that. (I have skis and snowboards, so I feel unbiased) Would I go back?...

I went here on a group ski trip without ever having gone skiing in my life. The mountain is beautiful. It's easy to get around the ski area. And the school is excellent.

We were very impressed with Taos Ski Valley. The terrain was challenging, but we (both in our late 60s) found plenty of ways down. The runs were well groomed, and the staff was very nice.

We've been to Taos many times. We love Ski Valley. There are things to do for those that don't ski and fun for the whole family.

This is a wonderful ski resort with a well deserved reputation for extreme skiing on expert runs. If you are intermediate like me you can ski a variety of runs on the back side. You take the main chair up, then a second chair, and ski down to the back side where there are a variety of intermediate runs. I... More
