Now, more than ever, we must come together as a community and support one another. Taos Ski Valley is focusing on caring for our staff and our local community. Together, we recover and build a more resilient community.
Taos Ski Valley is committed to our community during the coronavirus pandemic. Although our ski resort is closed, we’re working every day to support the people and organizations of Northern New Mexico who are impacted, as our values compel us to do. We offer our unwavering support to the residents of Taos through financial resources, volunteerism, and collaborative leadership expertise. Together, Taos will endure this challenging time.
5.20.2020 Fund for Taos update
The Village of Taos Ski Valley community raised $114,000 for the Fund for Taos, which is the specialized coronavirus relief, recovery, and resiliency fund created by the Taos Community Foundation. The $114,000 came from Village residents, businesses, resort staff, and homeowners, and includes an earlier $25,000 donation and an additional $25,000 matching grant from the Taos Ski Valley Foundation, the New Mexico affiliate of Louis Bacon’s, Moore Charitable Foundation.
“The incredible generosity of this tiny community is staggering and we are deeply grateful for their donations,” said Lisa O’Brien, Director, Taos Community Foundation. “These funds will help us serve area residents who are struggling amid the pandemic."
Lauryn Mangat, Guest Services Manager at The Blake, and her mother have been busy making masks for Taos Whole Health, Holy Cross Hospital, and community and family members in need. We applaud Lauryn and Terrie for stepping up and filling a void in our community!
When volunteers were called upon to help with food distribution to local school children, members of both the Taos Ski Valley Ski Patrol and the Operations teams quickly shifted from the mountain to our town to offer any assistance they could.
