Taos is a four letter word for STEEP, incredibly steep! Run after run of 30 to 50 degree pitches and chutes, untracked powder runs in the trees (see video) and unpretentious locals (take that Jackson Hole). Favorite runs; St. Bernard, Tresckow, North American and El Funko. If no lift lines, great snow and reasonably priced lift tickets, including a $10 after 2 PM afternoon pass, sound good to you than get yourself to Taos. Now with snowboarding allowed. Great Pizza at the Out Back Pizza on the road to the town of Taos. Just don’t let the waitress know you’re from Los Alamos.


I can’t think of anything that I disliked at Taos… Nope I got nothing.
