    Taos Ski Valley

    Kachina Peak stands high above the Sangre de Cristo mountain range at 12,481 feet. From here, skiers and boarders survey some of the finest terrain in North America - bone dry powder shots, steep chutes, big bumps, cornices, and glades- it is all here. If heart-stopping terrain is not your thing, you will find miles of well-manicured slopes and gradual groomers to carve up all season long. This mecca of snow sports shows every level of skier and boarder a great time.


    Skiing and riding are at the heart of the Taos Ski Valley experience. The 2014 construction of the Kachina Peak chairlift was the first of numerous on-hill improvements to enhance skiing and riding opportunities. Additional chairlift upgrades include a new Gondola and the replacement of Lift 1 with Taos’s first high-speed quad.


    Recognizing the importance of a mountain experience connected to a vibrant core, the revitalization of Taos includes a new village at the foot of the slopes complementing its one-of-a-kind surroundings. A re-energized pedestrian village and plaza will include a riverwalk experience, new retail shops and will provide a year-round gathering point for visitors, events and programs.

    SATURDAY FEBRUARY 20, 2021

    to

    WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2021

    Sign-up for all trips will be as of September 12, 2020.

    This will be our most Covid-19 friendly trip, with 2 people per room, our own transportation to the resorts and 3 week lodging cancellation for Covid-19 concerns and 4 weeks for other reasons with no penalties. (Tour operator cancellation fee will be applied, however)

    Powder Mountain has the most skiable terrain of any ski area in the United States. The 5,500 acres includes 2,800 lift-accessible acres. 500 inches of real snow annually makes the resort famous for its powder skiing. Snowcat skiing, the Powder Country shuttle, guided tours of Wolf Creek Canyon and heli-skiing ensure that you can find untracked slopes. Of course, real snow makes for beautifully groomed cruisers for those seeking less challenging trails.

    Since the resort is so massive, hosts conduct complimentary orientation tours daily at 10:00 am. Hosts can also be booked for half-day and full-day powder tours.
