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.

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.

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!

Best run on the mountain by far. Aggressive terrain with a short hike up to the start of the run. Never crowded, hidden & out of site with AMAZING views.

It a short uphill hike (about 150 ft.) that worth it, as the bowl is usually full of fresh, soft snow!
