  • Spring Weekend in Taos

    "I joined some girlfriends for a spring weekend escape and had a great time exploring the area. This was my first trip to Taos Ski Valley and I just loved the casual atmosphere, friendly people, mountain views, fun things to do and the Southwest decor and furnishings in this beautifully decorated and comfortable condo really added to a wonderful experience. The condo is a short drive from the historic town of Taos where we did a lot of shopping and tried some of the many great restauratns. We also did a spa day that was very relaxing and a lot of fun. I am looking forward to coming back in the winter to ski as the condo is just a couple of minutes walk to the main lift - great location!"

  • Great Condo 1 Mile from Taos Ski Valley

    "Lucky me! My first time to Taos Ski Valley, and on the second day of my stay, it begins snowing ... ultimately we had 17 inches! But back to the review. I was considering one of the mountain side condos or hotels, but they seemed a bit expensive and logistically seemed difficult to access. The Scenic Mountain Condo solved both problems. It was a great value and also offered the convenience of being close to the slopes without feeling confined to a slope-side unit. For $20 I used preferred parking at TSV so had the virtual experience of close-in access. The unit itself was updated and well maintained. The guys plowed the parking lot three times during the snowstorm. Bring your Warren Miller DVDs to watch on the Vizio flat-screen TV when you're not on the slopes or taking in the breathtaking sites of Rio Grande Gorge, Taos, or Carson National Forest. This unit was also about 20 minutes from downtown Taos, so close enough to also enjoy the shops and restaurants. I hope to return soon!"

  • One Of Our Favorite Places on Earth!!

    "Myself, my wife, and all my friends rent this house at least once a year for the past 4 years! Kevin is incredibly nice and very easy to work with! So many fun activities to keep EVERYONE busy, all types of personalities can find enjoyment here. The amenities are all updated, work perfectly and are easy to use. Laundry in the house is very convenient. Directly across the street from the mid-mountain ski run! Ski-in, ski-out! Great for groups of friends of all ages, families, or just a romantic getaway for two! This place is literally one of my favorite places on Earth!!!"

  • Fantastic Multifunctional Getaway

    "This is a great home for large groups, romantic getaway's and everything in between. We stayed there once with two other couples and their families (at total of 6 adults, 6 kids) and had a fantastic time. So good in fact, that we have now gone back several times with our kids and on our own. The house has accommodated each group perfectly. The location is great, especially in the summer/fall with easy access to many great trails. The house was immaculate when we arrived and is clearly well maintained by the owners. The hot tub, is a wonderful amenity-a real treat after a day of hiking or skiing. Overall, we would highly recommend this house!"

Taos Ski Valley Travel Tips

Taos Ski Valley Vacation Rentals

Taos Ski Valley is situated high in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico. Its roots go back to the 1800s when it was settled by adventurous pioneers and miners. The village was only incorporated recently, in 1996, and is the highest incorporated community in New Mexico at an elevation of 9,200 feet. This scenic area is surrounded by the Carson National Forest and known for its scenery and winter sports. Taos Ski Valley has dry powder snow and steep expert runs; it is generally uncrowded, even in peak skiing season. At other times, it also makes a cool getaway from the summer heat of nearby desert states.

Reasons to Choose Taos Ski Valley Condos

Taos Ski Valley vacation rentals are the ideal places to retreat to after a busy day of outdoor activities. Enjoy a long soak in the tub after hiking or skiing, then relax in front of a warm fire. Ski Valley condos come in various sizes to suit all families so everyone can enjoy doing their own thing in their own private space. With internet access and plenty of TVs, everyone is happy which is key to a harmonious and enjoyable vacation. Stock the refrigerator with food and drinks then stay home or dine out – the choice is yours.

Things to Do from New Mexico Vacation Rentals in Taos Ski Valley

The ski facilities offered at Taos Ski Valley far exceed other similar New Mexico resorts, thanks to its legendary steep hills and hike-to terrains. Snowshoeing, snowboarding and cross country skiing are available on the dry powder snow, along with snowmobile tours. There is also a top-rated ski school and children's center. If you want a break from snowsports, a drive down the canyon will bring you to the milder climate of the Rio Grande where hiking, biking and horseback riding can be enjoyed all year-round. The Rio Grande also offers opportunities for rafting in the spring and is ideal for kayaking and fishing.

In the summer, the mountains are ideal for hill walking and picnicking as they are surrounded by summer flowers, waterfalls and outstanding scenery. Use the chair lifts for the steep ascents and then hike along the ridges or descend the trails at a leisurely pace. The Rio Honde runs through the village and is the ideal place for fly fishing enthusiasts to catch local trout.
