Future Planning

Master Development Plan

Last Fall, Taos Ski Valley submitted an amendment to its current Master Development Plan (MDP) to the Forest Service for their review. The MDP Amendment outlines the proposed on-mountain improvements to enhance the resort's year-round offerings.  The amendment included the following additions:

  • Proposed Mountain Bike Trails
  • Proposed "Via Ferrata"
  • Proposed Nordic Ski Trails

Taos Ski Valley and Carson National Forest recently held a Master Development Plan (MDP) Amendment Public Forum. The presentation and Q&A included an overview of the changes submitted.
