Do not be dissuaded from skiing taos with kids. You will hear not to frequently, and its just not true. Small kids ski steeper blues easier because of their low center of gravity. You will see small kids all over Taos slopes, with ski school and with their parents. The ski school is probably the best there is and takes kids all over the mountain on interesting green and blue terrain, the kids will have fun and learn a lot. You will not see as many very small kids (3-6) skiing thru moguls anywhere else! Just put them in ski school and they will learn, and learn well. For never-ever teaching, the Rueggli lift and Strawberry hill are used to prepare them before going up the mountain to Whitefeather. Your kids will progress at Taos far faster than at most Co resorts, in my experience.
