Taos' ski weeks combine morning instruction with afternoon practice. Programs run Sundays through Fridays with instructors teaching snow skills for two hours each morning and presenting tech talks on biomechanics and ski psychology each evening. The week also includes video analysis and NASTAR. Regular ski weeks run from Nov. 22 through Mar. 30. Two weeks during the season specialize in racing and telemark skiing. Race week is scheduled Jan. 6–11 and includes four hours of gate training per day. Telemark Ski Week runs Jan. 20-25.
