About Taos, New Mexico
If you’re looking for a ski vacation steeped in history, art and culture—a place where ancestry comes alive, then Taos New Mexico should be top-of-mind. As a cultural center comprised of Native American, Spanish, and Anglo tradition, a ski trip to Taos is like going to a faraway land. When driving into Taos, you’ll notice adobe buildings, art galleries and a Native American Pueblo. The magical mountain that is host to Taos skiing, rises out of a desert landscape alive with spirit and soul. In fact, Taos is among some of the best small-town art destinations in North America. The resort matches what the town’s culture has to offer with every kind of terrain imaginable at Taos Ski Valley, from steep bumps and ridgeline chutes to open bowls and long groomers.
Taos resides in the famed Sangre de Cristo mountain range at an altitude of 8,000-plus feet. The high elevation, combined with New Mexico’s arid climate yields bone-dry champagne powder. Every type of skier will enjoy a Taos ski vacation, thanks to its four resorts: Angel Fire, Red River, Sipapu and Taos.
