Taos Ski Valley Top ten 10 Skiing and Snowboarding

Snowboarding Zone - Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico:

Riders Guide - Taos Ski Valley is a very well equipped New Mexico resort with a total of 12 lifts, comprising of 2 Surface Lift, 5 Double Chairs, 1 Triple Chair and 4 Quad Chairs that take you up to 110 trails where you can ski and snowboard on their longest run of 30,360 feet that will turn your legs to jelly atop 310 inches of powder. Their trails are rated 24% for Beginners, 25% for Intermediates, and 51% for Advanced.

Parks and Pipes - The Out to Launch terrain park is located on Maxie's run under lift No. 7 and offers two big airs, a hip, a quarter-pipe and rails. The park is groomed nightly.

Out of Bounds - You want to see all of the fantastic New Mexico scenery you possibly can, so book a snowmobile tour or old fashioned sleigh ride with Adventure Tours. Roadrunner Tours will take you on a sleigh ride to a sheepherders' tent and cook your dinner over an open fire. If you want to rent your own snowmobile, contact Fast Eddie's, Sled Shed or BobCat Pass Adventures. The must do in the Taos area is the Red River Night Sky Adventure. It's a powerful telescopic universe tour that due to the altitude and the crystal clear winter skies, is absolutely spectacular.

Hangout & Hookup - Apr├Ęs ski is great at The Bavarian, The Martini Tree Bar, The Edelweiss Bar or Tim's Stray Dog Cantina. However, you're going to want to check out Taos's bars and clubs, and where to start drinking in Taos is likely going to be your most problematic choice. You can select from really great watering holes like Arroya Seco Tavern, El Taoseno Lounge, Lambert's Bar, Lucky Shoe, Herb's Lounge, Ogelvie's Taos Bar, Hideaway Lounge, The Inn at Snakedance, Momentitos de la Vida and The Anaconda Bar at El Monte Sagrado for some upscale drinking and dancing. Eske's Brew Pub has some decorations left over from the hippie era, but you can't beat it for a selection of really great live country and folk music, as well as its excellent local microbrews and pub fare. You have to order a mug of Eske's green chili beer. Just drink it, and you'll be thankful afterwards. Drink a margarita the size of a bathtub at OBL and see if you can walk out. You can check out the sounds at the Thunderbird Lodge or go two steppin' at the Sagebrush Lounge. but if you want to really visit the two premier music and dance locations in Taos you have to head to The Adobe Bar and The Alley.

The Deal - Fly into Albuquerque which is served by most major U.S. airlines, and you'll find yourself about a three hour drive from Taos Ski Valley. All of the major rental car agencies can be found at 'Querque airport. Faust's Transportation or Pride of Taos can get you to the resort but you will probably be better off by renting a car. If you're driving in, get to Santa Fe, then take New Mexico Hwys. 285, 84 and 68 to Taos.
