Taos sky Valley is the best option to get driving to a sky area from most places in Texas. The slope of the mountain is similar to Aspen, it is smaller than Aspen but still has great runs and a nice Village.

The most friendly, helpful, and accessible folks at any ski area I've been to: shuttle drivers, direction/welcomers, locker guy (Tomas!), lift ticket scanners and operators, instructors, etc. Ski patrol is the real deal. I attribute this all to the fact that Taos is a serious...More

Taos is only 2.5 hours from home, so we go there several times a winter to ski and in the summer to hike and fly fish. It is a beautiful and fun place.

Wonderful but secluded ski area. Not for the faint of heart. Steep slopes and set up mostly for expert skiers. Great overall atmosphere

As a very experienced skier, it's very frustrating to see beginners on the experienced terrain. My biggest complaint is that there is zero beginner area here, so they are everywhere, slowing everyone else down. There's also only 1 high speed lift on the whole mountain,...More

My family and I are new to skiing and TSV was our first trip. For us, it was the perfect size (small to medium) and everything was very convenient. We don't know any better but the number of lifts and runs, and the quality of...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!
