Taos Ski Valley is one of the largest ski resorts in New Mexico. It has an exceptional mix of terrain and an incredibly friendly atmosphere. The mountains are high and cold, and the elevation allows for cool air and snow. However, this means that Taos has fewer crowds than other ski areas. This makes it a great place to go for a day trip or a family vacation.
The resort is a member of the Mountain Collective multi-resort pass. The app features real-time information on conditions, lifts, and skiers, plus offers deals and lift reports. It’s also a great way to stay informed on the resort’s upcoming events and seasonal activities.
Aside from skiing, you can enjoy mountain biking, horseback riding, and snowshoeing. The area is also home to the world-renowned Ernie Blake Snowports School. The school offers programs for all levels. During the winter season, visitors can participate in a Junior Freeride competition. This competition is sanctioned by the International Freeskiers and Snowboarders Association.
The Blake Hotel at Taos Ski Valley is a LEED Silver-certified property that opened in February 2017. The hotel is slopeside, offering luxurious comfort and authentic New Mexican culture.
