Beginner Snowsports

beginner experience

When learning to ski or ride, its best to learn from people who have learned to navigate some of the most diverse terrain in the country. You’ll start out on beginner terrain but before you know it, you’ll be venturing out on the mountain and seeing an array of fun-filled slopes that Taos Ski Valley has to offer.  



Lesson runs from 9:30AM – 3:30PM 

Meets at Pioneer Base Area

First time skiers and riders are guaranteed a ride on the chair lift.

Arrive one hour before lesson start-time to check in with the Snowsports Office and be fitted for rental equipment.
