Located in the Southern Rockies of North Central New Mexico, Taos combines the lore of the European Alps with the charm and beauty of the Southwest, creating a world class ski/ride experience. World renowned terrain, amazing food, friendly people, beautiful weather, breathtaking scenery and who could forget some of the lightest powder you will ever experience has kept guests coming back for over 50 years. Taos is a family owned and operated mountain that offers a little something for everyone with 1,300 acres of skiable terrain for all ability levels; smaller crowds and nonexistent lift lines make it easy to explore the entire mountain at any pace.

In 2010 Ski Magazine ranked Taos the 3 rd best mountain in terms of terrain, one of the top 25 resorts in North America and a top 10 affordable destination. Taos also has long boasted one of the best ski/ride schools in North America featuring their world famous $99 ski/ride weeks every week in January and early February!  

On March 19, 2008 “The Day Hell Froze Over” Taos officially dropped its long time ban on snowboarding.   The transition, true to Taos form, was an immediate friendship between boarders and skiers with everyone embracing the laid back Taos vibe and hospitality. This monumental change has allowed the return of many families and groups that called Taos their home away from home in the 80’s and 90’s.

In addition to snowboarding Taos has added new terrain for skiers and boarders of all levels and recently passed a new master development plan for future expansions and upgrades. The Burrows is a brand new beginner’s slope located at the base of the mountain featuring 400ft of the flattest terrain Taos has to offer. North American is a new Double Diamond Glade that parallels between Al’s Run and Longhorn. The Out to Launch Terrain Park has been doubled in size with new rail features, jumps ranging from 10 feet to 60 feet, a wall ride, countless other features and a devoted lift for continuous laps!

For the full family vacation Taos has more to offer than you can shake a stick at. Great après ski venues at the base of the mountain, a fun family tubing experience, some of the best food you’ll ever eat, live music nightly and that’s just the ski area!

The scenic Town of Taos, located just 15 miles down the road, is a vacation destination in its own right. The town is built around an 800 year old Native American Pueblo and features a Spanish Plaza in the towns’ historic center. In town you will find a vast array of shopping, art, food and music; for the kids and family the town offers everything from ice skating to movie theaters. www.skitaos.org
