Thank you for your interest in Taos Ski Valley! We are in the midst of planning for Winter operations for the 20-21 season and hope to have updates soon. We are faced with unprecedented times and uncertainty for what the upcoming Winter season may hold. Our goal is to be best in class when it comes to operating in a COVID-19 environment and ensuring the health and wellbeing of our staff, guests and community is top priority.

In the past few years we have taken intentional action to be more inclusive for our diverse community of employees, visitors, and neighbors. We value diversity because we value all people. We also know that shared perspectives from people with different lived experiences lead to new and better ways of acting for the common good. We are intentional about increasing the diversity of our staff and promoting equity in the outdoor recreation industry because doing so is right, and because it allows for richer experiences for staff and guests, as well as a greater connection to each other and this special place where we work.

All About Taos Ski Valley
Here, at the end of a box canyon surrounded by wilderness where the Rockies begin in the shadow of the iconic Kachina Peak is a place situated off the map of ordinary. A place that since its first lift was installed over 60 years ago has strived to stay true to its roots while growing better rather than bigger. Here we get a glimpse of the future, a ski area that is redefining what a year-round mountain resort can look like. A place that is independent, free-spirited, and intimate in scale. A place that is more home than destination, more retreat than resort, and the people that come here are more family than guests.
This defining drive to be better is at our core, but better means more than how we do business, it reflects what nature and history has so generously given us. Big vertical and terrain, abundant snowfall and sunshine, and a rich cultural mosaic formed by the heritage of its original Pueblo people and vibrant Hispanic influences. By its community of artists and artisans and by the adventurers drawn to its spectacular wilderness. Today, amidst this enduring character are the winds of change, it’s a revitalization of Taos Ski Valley that will preserve both our values and our environment, while reinvesting in lodging, infrastructure, lifts, snowmaking, and facilities. Our goal still is to grow better rather than bigger and to create something that is unique in approach that is supportive of our environment, our community and our culture. This vision for the future has helped make us the first ski resort in the world to earn B Corp Certification. It’s a symbol of where we’re headed and what we stand for. If you share these values and want to make your contribution to our mission, please apply so we can get to know you better.
