Compared to some of the really big resorts in Colorado & Utah, Taos is small. It is also quite skewed towards more difficult terrain. We are intermediate skiers. We found the intermediate trails fun, but did have to repeat the trails a number of times.
My wife & I took our 3- and 5-year-old on a road trip from Austin so see snow for the first time and Taos is reasonably close. We were able to go during the middle of the week during January, so lift lines were non-existent - literally, we never had a single person in front of us.
Our boys did two days in ski school. I was really impressed by our ski school instructor. Aiden, the instructor, was exceptionally supportive and patient with our boys (who, to be honest, are still probably a little too young for skiing).
The staff at TSV was very friendly and things were laid out well.
For a relatively inexpensive ski vacation, TSV is a good choice. For a trip to take kids for first time skiing, TSV is a good choice - as I was impressed by the ski school. If long lift lines really bother you, TSV is a good choice. For a longer trip or where cost is less important, then I might opt for somewhere like Breck, Winter Park or Park City.
