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.

I've been skiing since the early 70's and this place is totally stuck in the 70's! Yes they have some challenging runs (we could see them even though it was summer), but the buildings, the layout, condos, all of it...YUCK! We were there to check it out prior to our planned winter visit and to hike the trail to Williams... More

I love this mountain during the Winter as well as Summer. For skiing it can be intimidating for beginners, I would recommend skiing Red River or Angel Fire if your just learning and then coming here once you feel comfortable. There are many trails as you should plan on at least 2 or 3 days to fully explore this mountain.... More

Wonderful trails, great restaurant at the top, and a very scenic drive. You just can't miss this if you're in the area! Be sure to stop in Arroyo Seco on the way up, great shops and ice cream!

Good atmosphere and and great terrain. But the slopes didn't feel very balanced in planning. Either you were on extreme black diamonds or long barely sloping runs around the mountain. It was hard for me to find fast, hard runs. It was also just plain hard to find your way around. I rarely found the terrain parks. It was also... More

This mountain is NOT for beginners. I like to ski blue runs in general, but at Taos, the greens are more like a blue, and the blue trails are more like a black, and I didn't even TRY their black runs. It's simply because of how steep the mountain is. If you like speed, this is YOUR mountain! If you... More

We love coming to Taos Ski Valley anytime we can. This time my daughter and I came to ski. Growing up on Maui we were not very used to snow let alone skiing. Everybody we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. We rented ski gear right there, took a lesson and down the slopes we go.

Spent a week at Taos Ski Village with 15 family members. I was absolute fun. We had kids in ski school, experienced skiers, snow boarders and non skiers. There was something for everyone.

Amazing view and fresh air. Plenty of things to do. Nice sunset for our photographic adventure! We brought our own snowshoes. Try The Blonde Bear Tavern. Taos Ski Valley, NM. Fun dinner to end a great day for us after snowshoeing! Order desserts and share! Love the chocolate fondue!!

Taos is the best place I have skied in. The snow was always great. I worked there two seasons and the whole season it was perfect. May be the last days it could be a little wet, but til mid of March it was always great. Peaceful place out the holidays period. Beautiful nature, nice restaurants in the mountain, great... More

First time skiing in Taos and I have mixed feelings about it. Had great rates for our lift tickets from Liftopia which was great. I am an Intermediate skier while my friend was a beginner snow boarder. A few amazing runs and snow condition was still good for the last week in March. Lift lines were almost non existent and...
