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.

We have been coming to TSV for the past 10 years. This is our favorite mountain hands down any where in the US. It isn't very beginner friendly and will intimidate many low intermediates. Stick with it though. If you can ski here, you can...More

Just came for a couple nights. It's isolated and quiet. Weather is great but be sure and pack a sweater even in the summer months. It is currently under complete renovation so there is a lot of construction going on. People are friendly and it...More

We took the chairlift up to the top, which was around 12,000 feet and hiked down. It was a fairly easy hike; a little steep in a couple spots. It took us about an hour as we stopped frequently for pictures. I would encourage you...More

We took the lift up and hiked down. The lift operator was helpful in letting us know that the hike would take about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how quickly you choose to descend. The views were incredible on the walk. Be aware...More

If you don't compare the quality of snow and slopes with Colorado, it is very nice place to visit. I like it as it is closest to Dallas (still 14 hour drive).

We went during the summer and the weather was perfect. The area was gorgeous. The people are nice. I recommend doing a chair lift ride.

Not for beginners but wonderful for more advanced skiers. The lift lines were short and the snow was great.

Taos will probably beat out Angelfire on almost all of your criteria. We skied at Taos Ski Valley over Spring Break this year and rented a house. It was great. Taos has a famous ski school, which accommodates kids from... More

Ask if you can ride the lift up and back down. Employees do it alll the time.

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.
