Located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range in New Mexico, the “big snow basin north of Wheeler Peak in La Cal Basin” became the home of Taos Ski Valley in 1954. Fueled by Ernie Blake’s desire to have a ski resort of his own, Ernie and Rhoda Blake lived in an 11-foot camper in the base area and began to build the world-class ski resort.

Today, from the top of Kachina Peak at 12,481 feet (3804 meters), skiers and riders can access steep chutes, big bumps, cornices, and glades. For the less adventurous, Taos Ski Valley offers skiers and riders of every ability level perfectly maintained groomers to carve on. Offering 1,294 acres of accessible terrain, and 305 inches of snow annually, skiers and snowboarders will find Taos Ski Valley’s rugged, authentic terrain a great place to play.
