We just returned from Taos. They are definitely having a phenomenal snow year -- if you're a better-than-blue-cruiser skier, you'll love it. For the rest of us, it was tougher than usual. Bambi and Shalako are just about my favorite runs anywhere. I'm sad to hear that snowboarders will be allowed but I understand the business decision. It would be nice if they would improve the grooming on the greens and blues -- leave the tough stuff as is for the die hards, but accomodate those of us who ski with them. I still love Taos -- it feels like family!
