Green Chile Flow Trail

Taos Ski Valley is proud to announce the opening of the Green Chile Flow Trail. This lift-service mountain bike trail is the first of a series being built by Gravity Logic, out of Whistler, BC, with the help of the Taos Ski Valley Bike Park Crew.

Green Chile is unlike anything you will find in New Mexico. From the top of Lift 4 all the way to the bottom of the Kachina Basin, the Green Chile flow track is 3.5 miles of buttery banked turns, amazing scenery, and fun for the whole family. So, while Taos may have a reputation for steep, challenging wintertime terrain, Green Chile was built with one thing in mind: to provide a summertime experience that most people can enjoy. It doesn’t matter if you own a bike or if you are looking to rent a bike from Taos Sports’ fleet, this trail will appeal to just about anyone who is interested in mountain biking. 

At this time the Taos Bike Park is not a Park. Yet! You will not find any 20’ table tops on Green Chile. In fact, you won’t find any table tops, wall rides, or gravity defying drops. True to its New Mexico namesake, you will find that Green Chile is exactly what you’ve been looking to add to your life, and provides just the right amount of spice. Gravity Logic will spend the summer in Taos continuing to work with the Taos Ski Valley Bike Park Crew to build out more trails that offer higher degrees of challenge and excitement.
