Driving conditions to Taos Ski Valley

We are heading up to Taos for a day or two after visiting family in Albuquerque. We will have a rental car---and are just wondering if your average rental car with decent front wheel drive will do the trick (barring any significant snowfall). I have been to Taos in the past, and remember the roads in town to be relatively flat---but can't remember the trip out to the ski areas (either Taos or Angel Fire) at all!! Any help is appreciated...

2WD should be just fine...barring any significant snowfall...and we have had a bunch of snow this year.

Keep an eye on the weather forecast. Right now we have knee deep snow down here at the base of the mountain, and over 7 feet up above!

Have fun!
