Onthesnow.com Overview of Taos
Taos Ski Valley blends Swiss/French/Austrian founders' roots with the traditions and customs of the local Hispanic and Pueblo Indian cultures and comes up with something unique and almost magical. Home of extreme skiing in the U.S., Taos' terrain was first tamed by founder Ernie Blake. But, it is not just a resort for experts, having loads of beginner and intermediate runs, and one of the nation's best ski schools. It also has an excellent children's day care and ski facility, some superb lodges, and beautiful scenery. Its hike-to terrain is world-famous, but don't come to party all night - most people are too tired after a day on the slopes to rock 'n' roll after sunset, though the venerable charms of the Hotel St. Bernard's bar always await. Taos used to be skiers' only, but no more. Snowboarders are welcome.
