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

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

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!
