Located at the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains in Northern New Mexico, Taos Ski Valley is a world famous destination for riders and skiers of all ability levels. Taos is primarily know for its steeps but offers beginner & intermediate trails off the top of every single chair lift. For the advanced to expert skier/rider Taos offers some of the most challenging and varied terrain in the country, especially off its hike to ridges. The family vibe is also embodied in the quaint village of Taos Ski Valley. Not overdeveloped the resort offers a simple night life, lots of dining options, with everything in close proximity. If you are looking for more than skiing/riding check out the historic town of Taos just 18 miles down the road for a true vacation destination.

This is a steep hill. If you can ski here, you can ski anywhere. We have just returned from spring break and were extremely lucky to have been there when very few other schools were on spring break (interpret this as ABSOLUTELY NO LIFT LINES)....More

Our family has been coming here for 10 years. Started coming here when my two girls were in elementary school, they loved it then and still love it in their high school and college years. Great place for families, something for everybody.

Year in year out Taos is a winner, when the snow is good its the best ever, We've gone for the last 15 years and its always fun and challenging. The new Kachina life is outstanding skiing and the view is unparalled.

None of us took lessons. I would suggest 1/2 day lessons if you are a decent skier, but that's just my opinion. I don't have patience to be tied to an instructor for the entire day.
