There is no better way to enjoy your Ski Week than to sign your child up for one as well. While you're out on the mountain having the time of your life, they will be doing the same with a group of their peers. Then you can all meet up in the afternoon for an afternoon of showing off your new skills. Ski Weeks are a deep-rooted part of the Taos Ski Valley tradition so give your child the chance to be a part of that history as they create skiing memories that will last them a lifetime.
