Welcome to Taos: although skiing is serious business
acres of trails are also available for beginners.

Less than 25 miles from Angel Fire also lies the expansive Red River ski area with acres of varied ski and snow board terrain for beginners to hotshots. And if cross-country is your thing, Red River area also offers XC adventure - in the aptly named Enchanged Forest featuring miles of cross country and snowshoe trails.

However, ask international professional skiers their favorite New Mexico ski destination, and the immediate response is surely to be the legendary Taos Ski Valley, famous for over a thousand acres of skiable areas including steep chutes and advanced runs.

Skiing is serious business at Taos, reflected in the top-rated ski schools situated here with advanced training offered at extended stay race camps and mogul training sessions. More evidence of its ski-centric reputation lies in the fact that Taos allowed snowboarders to join in the action only in 2008.
