Taos

OVERVIEW

A Taos ski vacation is a soul-skiing experience, set in a world-class arts and heritage destination, and still “undiscovered” by the masses.

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 - dry powder shots, steep chutes, cornices, and glades. Debuting during the 2014-15 season, Taos is installing a new lift to Kachina Peak to provide easier access to the GoPro-worthy advanced and expert terrain.

If exhilarating terrain is not your thing, don’t worry – nearly 50% of the mountain is rated beginner and intermediate trails including well-manicured slopes and gradual groomers that are a carver’s dream. This mecca of outdoor sports suits all levels of skiers and boarders, and non-skiers will enjoy the culture and spirit of Taos, New Mexico.Read Less
