Toas is AWESOME! Toas Ski valley is my favorite place that i have skied. Some things you should know before you go... the terrain available to ski is going to be a little more advanced than your average resort. The easy runs may feel like intermediate runs. This is a plus from my perspective.
With the addition of the kachina lift Taos has opened up area's of the mountain that used to be only accessible with a 45 min thigh burning hike. Definitely world class! The planned West ridge lift will do more of the same. Bravo, Taos ski valley!
Taos: The skiers mountain. Not just for experts, but never disappoints them. The mountain provides thrills for all levels and all ages. The ski school is among the best anywhere. If you are willing to throw your boards on your back and hike, you'll enjoy some of the BEST. TERRAIN. EVER.
Great mountain with a lot of options! There are some fantastic tree runs that will please any intermediate to advanced skier, and some better left to the advanced. Lots of groomer options and space to spread out. I really dig the hill, but the locals leave a lot to be desired. There were a lot of crabby locals floating around, and most workers were standoffish and acted like they were too good for you. However, there were a couple that saved this from being a three star review.
Overall, cool place. Snow is nice and they have some great runs and a cool bowl. Just don't expect much from the staff and you'll have a killer time.
Actuallly all of the choices fit. I like the No Snowboards and great Terrain and snow conditions. It is not an overrun Vail celebrity big buck atmosphere and retains its southwest Atmosphere.
The expert terrain was amazing as well as the backcountry. it has a great atmosphere, that definitely oozes skiing vibes. The resort was incredibly family friendly and has skiing for beginning and intermediate skiers.
Taos SkiValley is a great family friendly ski area that gets plenty of early season snow but really needs a 100 inch base to ski everything . It has runs for everyone but has more advanced and Expert terain. The Town of Taos is cool.
I've never skied it. We visited this summer, my boys and I instantly fell in love!! We would really enjoy a chance to make some more memories at this beautiful place.
Definitely one of the most memorable mountains I've boarded. Very unique in a lot of different ways. From the parking lot shuttles to the intensity of the first lift (which hails a large sign that reads 'Don't Panic' just before you get on). Glad they added a lift to Kachina Peak. Can't wait to get back out there!
Taos has a great ski school and runs for all abilities. I get bored easily, but not there!
