Pack a snack and hop off at the top for a picnic at the picnic tables.

Relax and enjoy the beautiful Taos Ski Valley scenery on chairlift #4. Located on the backside of the mountain near The Bavarian. Take Twining Road and follow the signs up to The Bavarian Restaurant, parking and ticketing on site. Once at the top, enjoy views of Kachina and Wheeler Peaks. Hike down or ride the lift back down, bring a layer and enjoy the ride.

There are several picnic tables at the top of the lift, offering a great spot to bring your sack lunch. This is the perfect opportunity to view the mountain in its splendor, take photos and enjoy the wildlife that inhabit the area.

Tickets can be purchased at the Kachina Basin Ticket Office at Kachina Sports next to Chairlift #4, or at the Lake Fork Ticket Office in the Resort Base Area. Advance reservations not required. Ticket is good for the entire day.
