From Our Team
group of women employees in from of Lift 1 at Taos Ski Valley

“I love my job at Taos Ski Valley, not only because I get to work in such an awe-inspiring, mountain environment (the fact that I have a pair of dedicated work skis is not lost on me), or because I constantly feel supported to grow and challenge myself in my career path, but most importantly because of the amazing community of people I’ve had the opportunity to meet and call friends. The folks I’ve gotten to connect with from working here, both other staff members and regular guests alike, truly keep me coming back every year.”

- Kim; GIS Specialist/IT Support
