“If you are serious about getting better this is the ski school for you - period.”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Just finished my 7th ski better week with the Taos ski school. I came to Taos 7 years ago to learn how to ski any terrain in any condition, and now feel completely equipped to do that. They have their program very well developed and have a vast depth of talented instructors.

There is something about spending six days with 3-5 people of similar level and watching the instructor, and the others in the group do something and then having to do as well. It starts to get embedded in your brain. And even after you leave you will being skiing somewhere and something the instructor said or showed you will pop into your head and another piece clicks into place.

So if you want to get better this is the place - particularly if you are willing to push yourself.

And, if you get a Taos card the six days of lessons are $170 ($99 for certain weeks).

Both of my kids learned to ski at Ski Valley. Very professional, courteous. I would recommend to anyone, beginners or if you just want a refresher.

“Great ski school”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The staff at the ski school are patient, friendly, and great coaches. They are enthusiastic about the participants learning to ski. Overall, i thought it was a good deal as well, the lesson cost covers equipment rental and lift passes.

“Awesome for first timers”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

They say if you can learn to ski here, you can ski anywhere. Although I already ski, my husband had not. I rode up the lift with one of the instructors who commented it was the best ski school in the nation. I believe she is right. I watched the classes and they really care about the students and getting it right. My husband was well versed by lunch and ready to ski.
