Good "backside" ski run, especially when the Kachina lift isn't open.
Apr 2019
This is a run we kept coming back to throughout last ski season, at least until they opened the Kachina Peak Lift, from which you can access the upper part of Hunziger. Hunziger bowl can be accessed by riding up lift 4, going to the left, and then climbing a slight pitch to your right, just above the Kachina Lift. Hunziger Bowl is a fairly steep bowl, wide at the top, narrowing towards the bottom. At the end, you can head off to the right, hugging the slope towards some tree runs (and continue further right to El Funko, which is also excellent), or simply go straight down, veering to the left, and back down to the base of lift 4. Hunziger is a great place to go when things are crowded elsewhere, and is well worth the slight climb to get there.

Amazinnng Run with Amazing Views of Mt. Walter
Jan 2017 • Friends
You are in the Wilderness here and it feels like it. The Bowl is steep and often deep in powder. For some reason this used to be graded as a Blue Run, but now it is rightfully recognized as Black. From the far edge of the run there are some amazing views up the high Alpine valley toward Mt. Walter and beyond. a Great Ski Adventure - but if its blocked off - that's for good reason because Hunziger can be an avalanche danger. Follow the rules and you'll have a great, safe run.

Afraid to go up to Kachina bowl? try this!

Yes you have to climb a little bit to get up into Hunziger bowl but it's worth it. Not extreme like Kachina but still a big open bowl. some bumps near the entry but if you traverse along the top you'll find open spaces and if fresh snow you can make fresh tracks.. Really liked this bowl

Steep and wide open

This one is a bit out of the way, but worth the effort if you like a long steep and wide open trail all to yourself.

Best run on the mountain

If you can ski the blues at TSV then you should try Hunziger Bowl. There is a long run off that allows you to build some speed and slow down before the next drop.

Best run at Taos!
Mar 2016 • Family
My son and I must've run this run 10 times during our spring break trip. You have to ski UP to it (or take your skis off and walk a little bit) so that keeps the masses off of it. It is basically a steep and straight black slope. Easily the fastest run at Taos.

A little of everything
Feb 2016 • Friends
Getting to the Hunziger Bowl does take some effort. You can ski right to it if you are coming down from Kachina. If you are coming off Lift #4, it's going to require a little hike. It is possible to side step up the hill, but it might be easier to take off your skis and walk up. It is a beautiful area with gorgeous views. You'll first come up to a groomed area. If you prefer bumps, continue further in the bowl. There is also the option to do some trees. Just be careful of the rocks. Sometimes they tend to pop up out of no where.

Groomed twice a week in 2016
Feb 2016 • Friends
Getting to Hunziger requires a short hike, but it has improved since they changed the access point. It is now groomed periodically, so unlike years past, there are parts that are steep but not bumpy. If you are looking for ungroomed terrain, stay far to the right (going down) and take Totally Waird instead, if the snow conditions are good.

Has been very good skiing - at least when it is open...
Mar 2015 • Solo
There has been a long time bumper sticker around that extolls Taos Ski experience: What's a four letter word for Taos? Steep....Now the joke is What's a six letter word for Taos? Closed! I can't count the number of days the entire back side of Taos' Ski mountains have been closed this year. And even when it is open, Hunziger bow, a short hike to an adjacent bowl, l is often closed. Also usually closed is the much advertized Kachina Peak lift. Let's face it, Taos Ski Valley is in crisis. They have vastly under hired ski patrol, and as a result, take days to open even lift serviced runs. This is simply unacceptable. Mr. Bacon and co-investors better be careful and hire a small army of ski patrol personnel if they have to, otherwise Taos will become the laughing stock of the ski industry: loads of beautiful, lift serviced terrain that you can't ski for days after a storm!
