Light! The place is dark. Add some lamps and task lighting and the Chamonix unit will be a much better place to stay. The lighting was either too blindingly harsh or non-existent. in the kitchen and the coffee/pantry area above the dishwasher. The location is good. Parking is a little tight. I slept on the Murphy bed and it was... More

I stayed at the Snow Bear Inn over the Thanksgiving weekend in the Vail unit. It was great! It is a true ski in ski out condo. The owners Christian and Donna were very helpful and wonderful to us. The snow at Taos was perfect. We plan to go back soon.

We were two couples renting Breckenridge Front on the third floor (a pretty awkward climb wearing ski boots), which consisted of a central living room/dining room/kitchen and two bedrooms, one off to each side. When we arrived, the road up to the condos was so slick, we could not make it up the hill. Nowhere did it say a four-wheel... More

First off, I would like to say that the Snow Bear Condos is sorry that this customer felt they experienced so many problems and we would like to address all of these issues A four wheel drive vehicle is not a necessity at the Snow Bear except after a big Snow Fall and even then, we have a shuttle that...

Short and sweet: The Snow Bear is a neat little lodge very close to the Children's Ski School at Taos. There are probably more luxurious properties with greater amenities out there, but the direct ski-in access, updated rooms and personal service cannot be beat. Donna and Christian could not have done more to make sure our stay was enjoyable and... More

I have stayed here twice and was able to confirm this time what I suspected this time. Don't get me wrong, the room itself wasn't bad. Has a timeshare vibe. Here's the weird part, which may make you wonder about some of the other reviews here. Keep in mind I stayed in the low season so maybe things are odd.... More

Unfortunately, this was the up and over race in Taos ski valley and the snow bear was asked for a room that handled only 2 guests as a gift to the race officials. we were not aware of the time frame that the guests would be arriving, hence we were not there to greet them. The previous year, we must... More

Really nice lodge feeling condo. Great staff that made sure everything was perfect. Condo was in good shape with everything we needed for an awesome ski vacation Would highly recommend a stay. Taos is great and the bear is a fun place to stay. Bring your 4x4. Driveway is a bear! Hey. That's we're the name came from.

This is the best place to stay at TSV! The location - can't be beat. We saw wildlife from the patio, skied in/out with ease and went sleding on the nearby hill. Centrally located and incredibly easy to navigate. But, don't worry, if you have troubles the owners/staff are there to help. And they DID help in every way to... More

We arrived at the codo after a full day of skiing in TSV. The manager had been very helpful over the phone so we were a bit surprised that he didn't help us with our many bags and heavy ski equipment from the car, across a building and up two flights of stairs. He stayed on his cell phone the... More

We apologize that the maintenance manager was on the telephone when you arrived. We do not allow skis in the unit so he probably did not realize that you did not put your skis on the racks provided for you exactly where you park your vehicle. The Maintenance manager is over 50 as well and he may have not have... More
