Moving On Up - Taos Ski Valley

February 26, 2018 | By: Monica Christofferson

For the last several months, Taos Ski Valley visitors have been able to enjoy the improvements made over the last year. This season marks the updated learning area, the renovated children’s center, the ski area’s push for sustainability, and the tenth year of snowboarding at Taos.

Strawberry Hill, Taos’s beginner area, was reshaped to offer five beginner sections, allowing for a smooth progression for novice skiers and riders. With each section gradually increasing slopes, beginners can gain skills with confidence. The implementation of terrain-based learning naturally controls their speed, providing a more fun and efficient on-snow experience.

Taos’s dedication to children and families is further evidenced by renovations to the children’s center. Geared to make drop-offs and pick-ups simpler, there is a new check-in area, as well as updated lounge areas for families to enjoy.

From the children’s center, a new pulse gondola takes guests right to the lifts for more time spent on the slopes. Now, snowboarders and skiers alike can feel confident they are patrons at a ski area leading efforts in making snow sports more environmentally friendly.

Taos will enhance the industry’s first-and-only environmental and social responsibility effort, B-Corp Certification, with new steps to eliminate carbon emissions and waste while improving forest health.

From March 17 to 19, Taos Ski Valley will celebrate its 10th year welcoming snowboarders to the mountain. To learn more about the weekend’s events and plan a trip to Taos to check out the improvements for yourself, visit
