              Car: Necessary

              The snow at Taos is light and plentiful. The mountain has a challenge for everyone at any level especially for the expert skier and adventurer who is willing to skip into a secret stash just off the main trails.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We are Gary and Julie Gittings and we obviously adore Taos year round but especially in ski season. We first came to ski in Christmas of 1999 and started dreaming of owning our own special place in the mountain. We want you to love the experience as much as we do.

              Why the Owner Chose Taos Ski Valley:
              Taos Ski Valley is uncrowded and friendly without pretension. When they say it is truly a skier's mountain and the unresort resort, they mean that everyone values and respects the fact that we all just love to ski or ride. Not that the shops and restaurants aren't amazing and authentic also, but the mountain rules them all. You need all wheel or 4WD however in winter.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Our condo boasts the best breathtaking views of any location. In summer walk out the door to the Williams Lake Trailhead - cool 70 degrees. Ski season, we walk to the lift - at 5 minutes - but you can drive over and drop off your equipment and start at lift 4. Check out the trail map to see how you will get first tracks by being here at mid-mountain. (If you need to drop small children off at Ski School, either leave extra time to ski them down the green return trail or drive them down the mountain in your 4WD vehicle)
