First of all I would like to say Taos is a late season mountain and always has been. Those bitching about the snow conditions are probably going in Nov, Dec. Taos needs at least a 70" base or more to be at it's best and that usually comes later in the season Feb, March and April. Taos is also predominantly a expert mountain with many black and double diamond runs. Taos also has plenty of courderoy groomers that stay groomed all day sometimes due to uncrowded slopes. Many new lifts and upgrades have been put in over the last 5 years by the new owners. If you are all about the skiing and don't mind the lack of the luxury B.S. and amenities that Colorado has then Taos is one of the best. No Frills , Friendly folks, Great food and simply some of the best skiing in the Rockies. Taos is absolutely world class in terms of "Skiing", so all you rich folks please stick to your , Breck, Vail, Aspen, Etc Etc Etc and leave this hidden gem for folks that have a passion for actual skiing.
