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
Just spent two nights in TSV. We were scheduled to stay a third but left early. Nothing is open! Two places to eat and the service was bad at both. They are only half open. The hike to Williams Lake/Wheeler is awesome but you can...More
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 toddler age (mostly day care and fun activities with a little time spent on the snow) through adulthood. There is also a place to ride inner tubes down the hill if you don't feel like skiing.
For cultural sightseeing, the Taos Pueblo is like stepping back in time, and the residents still live there without the use of electricity or indoor plumbing, as they have since the 1600's. Shopping in town is fun for all ages around the Plaza. Lots of t-shirts and toys for kids, as well as art galleries for adults. Good food is available all over Taos, and most are family friendly.
As the other contributors said, you can make an easy day trip to Anglfire and get the best of both places. I just think Taos offers more of everything you are looking for. Hope this helps.
