If you've never been here or it's been a while, you need to check it out! The renovations are amazing and have maintained the charm the Taos has always had.

I realize that most people rate, and rightfully so, ski resorts on the quality of the skiing. I have a different approach! The best après-ski scene I have ever experienced was at the Taos Ski Valley!

This was my first time to visit the impressive Taos Ski Valley. Fall is a wonderful time of year to check out this area. Cool crisp mornings were invigorating. The colorful mountains were absolutely gorgeous. I want to do some hiking the next time I...More

We enjoyed getting up in the mountains and escaping the heat. There are lots of trails in the area for summer visitors.

Natural snow was nearly non-existent in January when we came. Taos did a great job with their man-made snow and there were just enough trails open for us to have a great time. Would definitely return.

I’ve skied many of the ski resorts of the West (Colorado, Wyoming, Utah & Montana) But I hadn’t seen Taos Ski Valley. And yes, it’s summertime, not quite the same. But we drove up to TSV, to see what we could see. There’s not much...More

My family came here to conquer the Wheeler Peak and several trails in the area. But alas, that's not to be. All the campgrounds, trails and creek access were closed due to high forest fire danger just two days before our arrival(June 27th). So we...More

OK, Taos was my 'home area' for 1970 to 1983. I have been back to ski here all the way from the Resort Mecca, Denver, about every 5 years or so. I really love this place. It has been made better with some recent improvements,but...More

Sorry, we were there for a summer visit. However, if you contact them directly, I'm sure they can help you. Skiing in Taos is magical! Have fun--remember, you'll be at high altitudes, so keep hydrated!

Taos will probably beat out Angelfire on almost all of your criteria. We skied at Taos Ski Valley over Spring Break this year and rented a house. It was great. Taos has a famous ski school, which accommodates kids from... More
