If you’re looking for a more relaxing day at the ski valley, e-bikes are a perfect way to explore. Start at Taos Sports and bike up the Rubezahl Trail to The Bavarian to enjoy a beverage and a bratwurst! Mountain bikes and e-bikes are available to rent at Taos Sports all summer!

Via Ferrata

The TAOS Ski Valley Via Ferrata is your chance to experience the thrill of high alpine mountain climbing – no experience necessary. Donning a harness and helmet (equipment included), guests will be personally led by our Via Ferrata guide along a network of cables and climb pre-set routes of iron bars. Situated at 11,500 feet in the sub-alpine ecosystem of Kachina Peak, our guided tour offers beginner through advanced Via Ferrata route challenges, a 100-foot skybridge, and a double-cable catwalk. Guests can progress to vertical terrain with spectacular views of the Rio Hondo and Wheeler Peak Wilderness.
