Taos is home to world-class skiing and snowboarding resorts and great winter family fun!

If you’ve had your eyes on the ski and snowboard media in recent years, chances are you’ve read plenty about skiing in and around Taos. The pristine terrain, epic snowfall, and abundance of après-ski opportunities keep Taos’s ski resorts on top-10 lists year after year. Within the area called The Enchanted Circle, options abound for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, from kids and beginners to extreme enthusiasts (i.e., people who enjoy launching themselves off cliffs). Whether you want to cruise with the kiddos or scare yourself silly on the steeps, Taos has the terrain you’re dreaming of and the ethereal powder to make your dreams come true. 

Each ski and snowboard resort in the Taos area has its own vibe, from rustic to swank, yet they all have something a little special that sets them apart from other destinations. It may have something to do with the bluebird skies, the vertiginous grades, or the bone-dry stashes of powder. Or maybe it reflects the camaraderie between those searching for a different kind of ski and snowboard experience, one that Taos offers in spades. Taos is off the beaten path, a bit quirky, utterly charming, and a ski and snowboard destination unmatched in the west.

After a day gliding the groomers with the kids, pounding your knees on marathon bumps, or swooshing through the trees with only the birds for company, Taos’s ski resorts have plenty more to offer the body and soul. Soak your weary bones and get a massage for your sore muscles at one of the many day spas at Taos’s ski resorts. Then replenish your energy stores for the next day on the slopes with anything from spicy northern New Mexican cuisine to four-star fine dining, on the hill or in town. Follow that up with drinks and live music, then hit the hay to rest up for the next epic powder day.
