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.

Taos is not for the faint of heart skier. High altitude and many very steep trails make this a very exciting place

I have been to Taos several times and have always had an excellent experience. The ski week, lodging, food and lessons is the absolute best way to ski Taos.

This was my first trip to Taos Ski Valley. I went on a long weekend ski trip with a few buddies and had a great time. The mountain was very diverse and there was more runs for average/novice skiers than first meets the eye. There were a good amount of green/blue runs and also plenty of challenging black and black...

A good 2 1/2 miles past the main compound at Taos Ski Valley, at an altitude of 10,200' with snow on the ground and a brand new ski lift steps from the inn, what's not to love about this place??? Other than the fact we stayed at the Bavarian during the off season, this would be the perfect place for... More

I have been coming to Taos for 9 years. I try to do at least one ski better week every year. And every year I am completely amazed just how good the ski school is. It is reputedly the best in the nation and I have experienced nothing that would make me doubt that. I have had ten different instructors... More

I had heard much about the steep terrain at Taos and had wanted to ski here for years. We finally had our chance this spring and Taos delivered as promised! My boyfriend and I are pretty good skiers (we live in Colorado) and we thoroughly enjoyed the steep tree runs, hike-to ridges and of course, we took full advantage of... More

Taos is new four letter word for steep! That's what my friend told me almost 10 years ago. It took me this long to finally ski in Taos. Oh boy he was right and why did I wait so long to come here? I went to enjoy spring skiing last weekend. Lift ticket was discounted and I really enjoyed steep... More

I decided to hike Highline Ridge and do Juarez this afternoon 3/26/15. I had just skied Kachina and the moguls were at least doable. Jaurez never softened. I dropped in ok but about 40% down the hard, craggy conditions got to me and I fell and lost my pole, helmut, goggles, and prescription glasses. I traveled down about four moguls... More

I've skied most major resorts and this was my first time at Taos ski valley. To me this resort doesn't compare to the the major resorts. So much of the terrain is expert and if the snow conditions aren't good you can pretty much forget skiing most of the mountain. What's left are a limited number of blues and greens... More

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.
