When Ernie and Rhoda Blake established Taos Ski Valley in 1955, it was because they desired for themselves and their friends a true high alpine lifestyle.  It was immediately apparent, given the challenging terrain and deep snow, that a school would be required, and that the instructors would need to be highly skilled.


Winter sports have changed dramatically since 1955, but the school has maintained its 60+ year reputation as one of the best places to have fun while improving your skills.


Our expanding lift network allows all levels, including novices, to be successful on the mountain.  Steep and deep terrain is everywhere, but there is plenty of green and blue terrain from top to bottom.

Adult Class Lessons

PERSONAL, CUSTOMIZABLE AND VERY AFFORDABLE

Our Adult Snowsports programs are the result of more than 60 years of experience and feedback about our Mountain and how people learn. Our instructors tailor each experience to your needs, but the general guidelines are: be aware of your surroundings, have fun and gain confidence on any terrain, in any conditions. Group lessons are offered morning and afternoon (9:30am and 1:00pm) and private lessons begin at two hours and can be reserved for three hours or six hours (all day).
