Property description

A perfect ski/snowboard place for family vacations. Now renting entire house. Upstairs: large high ceilinged LR, DR, open kitchen, 2BRs + loft, 1 bathroom w/ extra 2-sink anterior room. Charming 3-bedroom 2-bath unit on ground floor. 2 bedrooms with queen beds are adjacent to separate bathrooms (1 of these bedrooms has a separate outside entrance); 3rd bedroom 2 bunk-beds--ideal for children; also laundry room.

Cozy living/dining/kitchen areas have everything--including spices! No one is out of the action stuck in a kitchen. Relaxing cabin decor includes aspen wood ceilings and comfortable furnishings. Free Wi-Fi. Most cell phones work fine except on the busiest holidays when tower capacity can be overwhelmed, especially for AT&T. Owner who loves to ski can provide forgotten items and local information re skiing, lessons, ski/board rentals, restaurants, etc, etc.

Short 5-7 min walk to lifts; optional very very short drive to parking area. 4-wheel drive or AWD strongly recommended for Coyote Lane although roads are plowed regularly; 2nd house in from low-traffic main road (Twining Rd). Assistance with access is possible with call to owner.

Very reasonable SUMMER and FALL get-away rates with popular hiking trails galore, mountain biking, disc golf & mountain lift rides. High temps in the mid-70s. Gorgeous night views of the stars.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Retired university professors with time now for outside activities: downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, camping, hiking, white water kayaking, sea kayaking, fishing, tennis, yoga, photography, painting, exploring the Southwest and South Florida, etc, etc.

Why the Owner Chose Taos Ski Valley, NM, USA:
We finished building our home in 1989. We have enjoyed our home and the nearby activities tremendously. It’s never ever boring! Dependable snow conditions and reknown skiing; unique tri-cultural area with beauty that truly enchants! No throngs = no lift lines. Trails to match all abilities; Super-great ski school for adults, teens, children; also kiddie/infant care. Delightful summer; great escape from the heat. Spectacular fall; brilliant foliage and great photo opportunities.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
WINTER: Great snow conditions with frequent powder; Beautiful sunny blue skies; Starry starry nights! Deeply-discounted ski week lessons; torchlight ski parades Christmas, New Year’s Eves and Spring Break Saturday; acclaimed Wine Festival (Jan); awesome extreme ski competition (Mar); wonderful crowd-free family-friendly skiing & snowboarding. SUMMER: Cool mountain temps with mid-70s highs. Wheeler Peak, NM's highest at 13,161 ft, visible from our street corner. Great hiking, mtn biking including Frazier Mountain Madness (July) with cyclists going directly up our street. Multiple Taos Mountain Music Festivals in summers.
