Our Location

We are located an easy drive from the Town of Taos, which sits at the base of the mountains. It takes about 30 minutes to drive from Taos Plaza to the Ski Valley, passing through historic villages and mountain canyons. The area’s early ski pioneers, residents, and employees blended their love of skiing with the local Native American and Spanish cultures to craft a mountain retreat out of an old mining town. Over the years, Taos has become world-renowned for steep runs of powdery, dry snow in the winter and stunning forest surroundings in the spring and summer.

With unprecedented access courtesy of JSX, visitors from Texas and California can fly directly to the Taos airport, instead of flying into Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

Follow along as we head up NM-150 from the base of the mountains just north of Taos up to the Village of Taos Ski Valley.
