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.

Taos Ski Valley resort is under new ownership, and they have redone some of the base area, with more to be done there, and have put in a new lift to Kachina Peak that services 30% more advanced to expert terrain. I learned to ski at Squaw Valley, which had both a tram and a gondola to get skiers to... More

- The trails at Taos are challenging...even the green/blue trails (for green/blue compared to other ski resorts green/blue) The conditions were epic! The staff was EXCELLENT! (very friendly/professional and helpful). -The most important tip I can give is start on a color trail that is one less than what you are used to and work back to the color you... More

This is a beautiful ski resort with a lot of slopes. The downside is the difficulty of the slopes for novice skiers. The greens are pretty tough...I would say the equivalent of blues in a lot of places. However, the Taos Ski School was fantastic.

We decided to spend Thanksgiving in Santa Fe, NM and then drove to Taos Ski Valley on Black Friday. We were impressed with the place, with how organized and friendly the staff are, and how wonderful the ski resort is. My boys who are both teenagers had a blast snowboarding. The place is not as spectacular as ski resorts in... More

After a 14 hr drive from Louisiana the day before finally opening day at TSV. Free parking and a shuttle, rented skis, bought lift tickets all within an hour. There is a beginner area with a surface lift and chairlift. A look at the mountain is a little intimidating but there is a sign that reminds you that you are... More

We live in Texas and didn't want to fly, so we decided to drive up to Taos. We slept in Santa Fe then woke up on the 27th and drove to Taos. We rented a beautiful chalet right in front of the ski area, which was perfect for us. The boys loved it more than anything and didn't want to... More

We went Thanksgiving Day, which was their opening day of the year. Parking was easy. Ski, boot and clothing rental did take about 45 minutes. Our instructor with 31 years experience was very very good, and we found ourselves skiing a pretty steep level 1 slope after about 3 hours. The snow was powdery, and the lift was pretty reliable...

Fresh mountainous region. The taos ski valley is a very beautiful place to be. I accidentally got caught up in the native american sun dance ceremony here. Which will forever stick in my mind as being a very intense and deliberate ceremony. I was also offered peyote by members of the native american church although I declined I saw a... More
