The Blake

ALPINE RETREAT

AT HOME IN OUR VILLAGE

The Blake at Taos Ski Valley is at the heart of the resort’s renaissance connecting the iconic mountain with a vibrant cultural journey. The Blake embodies a soulful tapestry that is uniquely Northern New Mexican. Woven into The Blake experience are the wild elements of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, a confluence of cultures a thousand years in the making and an independent streak that belies Taos’s true sense. From big-mountain adventure steps from the door, to tiny rituals that sear the story of our alpine retreat in the hearts and minds of the guests we welcome year-round, this is more than a place to stay.

Art, Architecture and Design

The Blake at Taos Ski Valley is a place where the currents of History, Culture and Art merge.  Taos has been identified as the place where many roads end.  The Santa Fe Trail, El Camino Real, the Northernmost of the 19 Pueblos, the Eastern border of the Navajo nomadic migration lands and the Western edge of the Plains tribes.  These influences have forged a true melting pot of people and cultures.  The broken wheel which led to the creation of the Taos Society of Artists and the subsequent residencies of Mabel Dodge Luhan, Georgia O’Keeffe and D.H. Lawrence eventually established Taos as a center of the international world of art.
