Taos ski area, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, New Mexico, Management Description

<<< Back to Taos ski area main page

 Taos ski area Management Says:
Taos Ski Valley is one of the world's most unique and picturesque ski resorts. It is a place where one can escape into the ancient cultures of the Southwest or explore the side of a vast mountain that has been opened up for skiing and snowboarding, but not tamed. Taos combines the warm ambiance of a small European-style village nestled at the base of a great mountain, a superb ski school and an ambiance founded on the classic
    pleasures of skiing and snowboarding. Taos blends its high elevation and arid desert climate to provide skiers with the perfect conditions; light dry snow and bright sunshine. From the famed steeps to gentle bowls, Taos' terrain
appeals to the super-expert and the beginner alike. With a peak elevation of 11,819 feet, a base of 9,207 feet and 1,294 acres of ski trails, Taos offers varied and challenging terrain to delight skiers of all abilities.
One of Taos' most enduring ski traditions is the steep skiing off The Ridge. This requires a hike of anywhere from 10 minutes to one hour to get to these ''extreme, double-diamond'' runs. The reward is the best ''steep and deep'' skiing
 
in America and a chance to experience off piste skiing. While many resorts have traded in their personality for large-scale development, Taos has preserved its soul.
