Employment & Services
When looking for new services provides, Taos Ski Valley looks for local providers first such as using Brownrice for our Cams & Conditions streams.
We also proudly seek out local community members to join our team.
When possible, we choose to buy our goods & services from the community. A few examples include in The Blake, guests can find local goods like Tea.o.Graphy teas, High Desert Honey, Taos Bakes, Chokola, and many more. Taos Sports sells Splitter Hats made by Taoseño maker, Peter Gilroy.
We are committed to making sure our community has the ability to experience the freedom and fun the mountain offers and actively seek opportunities to make sure the youth in Taos as well as underserved communities have the opportunity to ski. We invest in our local community through the donation of ski passes, ski lessons, and lodging, as well as hosting numerous charitable events throughout the year.
A few of our current initiatives include working with the Taos Community Foundation on programs like Give a Kid a L.I.F.T and the Ridge-a-Thon, Not Forgotten Outreach Week, and Boarding 4 Breast Cancer Shred the Love.
