Full review

Taos is the #1 ski resort in the state of NM, hands down. Even the excellent Ski Santa Fe, which is also world-class, cannot quite compare to Taos. Both have actually been recognized in recent years by Conde Nast Traveller magazine, occupying their elite "20 Best Ski Resorts in the U.S. and Canada" list, for the Readers Choice awards. They do have some nice easy runs, and quite a few intermediates also, but the real treasures in these mountains are the very steep black and double-black diamonds. There are more steep chutes, tree runs, and open slopes here than you are likely to find in most places, though some of it is hike-to terrain. There is a reason the UNM ski team trains here (one of the finest in the nation), and also the Freeride Extreme Skiing Championships every spring. Usually the deepest base and most fresh powder in the state as well.
