Via Ferrata tours are still available 7 days a week!

In alignment with the state of New Mexico, our COVID-Safe Practices remain in place. Please read below how we plan to keep the well-being of our staff, community, and guests front of mind through our summer season.  

2021-22 Winter operations

We're so excited to be preparing for our 2021-22 ski season! The full winter operations plan is still in the works. We plan to remain flexible, continue to align with the state of New Mexico, and maintain our COVID-Safe Practices. Please check back for the full winter operations plan prior to your visit.  

current COVID County    Rating

Taos County is currently marked as turquoise based on the New Mexico COVID rating system. Counties at the Turquoise Level have reached the Green Level for two consecutive biweekly map updates. Green is defined as have both a new COVID-19 case incidence rate of no greater than 8 cases per 100,000 inhabitants during the most recent two-week period, and an average percent of positive COVID-19 test results over the most recent 14-day period less than or equal to 5%.

modified operations

We’ll continuously monitor all guidelines and the effect of the coronavirus on the community, and may adjust any aspect of our business operations at any time in response. 

PLAN YOUR TRIP

This summer, it's easy to plan ahead for your trip to Taos Ski Valley. Tickets for mountain biking and the scenic lift can be purchased online. Please call to reserve a Via Ferrata climbing experience.  

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU

As we have since the onset of the pandemic, we continue to use State health protocols as the foundation of our decision-making. We are following the latest New Mexico Public Health order: All individuals 2+ years, vaccinated and unvaccinated, must wear a facemask if indoors unless eating or drinking or in an office space alone. We are updating our signs to reflect this change. We will continue to monitor the situation and stay inline with recommendations and mandates.
