Master Development Plan

In accordance with the terms of the Ski Area’s Special Use Permit, Taos completed a Master Development Plan (MDP) in 2021 to outline plans for future improvements on National Forest Service lands within the Ski Area boundary. Several public engagement and outreach meetings occurred during the planning process of the 2021 MDP, in order to better develop and refine concepts for improvements at the Ski Area. The map below shows the full range of improvements proposed in the MDP. To hear more information about the Master Development Plan and Process, please watch this video from a public forum that occurred in May 2021: 5.04.2021 Master Development Plan Virtual Public Forum Recording - YouTube
