No lift lines, No Terrain Park lines, no parking fees; just TONS of snow, GOOD VIBES, and PURE skiing. I got my college pass for Taos, DO YOU????
Shut up Julien! Get off Newschoolers for once will ya! JK:) I am just trying to support my home mountain, so we can get a better park or something. Seriously though, A great deal!!!! Get yo college passes and check Taos out. One of the most underrated ski resorts in North America. Best ski resort by Southern Colorado and the best of New Mexico!
had to post just to rep my icon haha. seriously though thats sick, I'm in collage in santa so it would be perfect, thats like half the price of the season passes here. too bad i already got one for here and gas would make the difference between the costs disappear anyway. ill be up there anyway though so its fine, I'm stoked to see if the park is really going to change much or not.
LEGENDARY LONGBOARDS, KONA BIKES, LINE SKIS
scooters r like fat girls, they're fun to ride till ur friends catch u
Wolf Creek is definitely not better than Taos. It is much flatter and smaller. Taos has more terrain and more steeps. Taos almost gets as much snow as Wolf Creek does. No lift lines in Taos either. Thus, the best resort in Southern Rockies!
Best time to come to Taos is February-March. Anytime around spring break. Usually we get pounded by storms throughout February so there are plenty of Powder days. The park is usually in full operation by that time too. All our biggest features are up.
I'm actually at ENMU, Eastern New Mexico University, which is in Portales, NM. I'm in grad school for archaeology. It's about 6hrs from Taos, but I'm used to that coming from S. California and having to drive to Mammoth, except at least in S. California there are smaller resorts (however snowboarder dominated/non-skier friendly) much closer (Big Bear, Mountain High, Mt. Baldy). I was lucky too 'cause I went to HS only about 15 or 20 min from Mt. High. University of New Mexico in Albuquerque is WAY closer tho to Taos, but it's good in a way because it's forcing me to study and go to school and not skip out and go skiing instead, which you can't really do once you hit grad school.
Heh... The University of New Mexico (UNM) is a HUGE University in Albuquerque. They're ranked #1 in the country in archaeology for their PhD program. I'm thinking about applying after I get my masters. :) As for other colleges in NM, there's New Mexico State, which is in Las Cruces, and Eastern New Mexico University, Portales. There might be a community college in Taos, but UNM is pretty solid.
I know... I grew up, 18 years in NM, I'm saying there literally is a physical UNM branch off in Taos. I have never been, but someone was asking what the closest college was to Taos. You see the sign every time you drive in.

UNM in Albuquerque is approximately 3 hours from Taos Ski Valley. UNM also has a branch in Taos, UNM Taos, that offer artisan type courses like jewelry, painting, and other arts and crafts courses. I don't think any indians really go there, but there might be a few.
I ended up skiing in Keystone most of my freshman year at CU Boulder. Unfortunately I had too much fun and wont be going there next year. I will be buying a Taos college pass though and hitting Taos as much as possible. Cant wait for next season, such an underated area...
