Property description

This house is just 1/2 mile below the Kachina Lift on the main road.
This is a private home high up in Taos Ski Valley. This home is perfect for your family trip to Taos Ski Valley. Our home is one of the rare houses near the upper lift (kachina) at Taos, Only 1/2 mile below the lift on the road to the Bavarian. With the hiking, biking and skiing trails just outside your doors. Walking to and from the ski trails downhill both ways, but it is a steep walk so we suggest parking in one of the lots. There are plenty of mountain activities in both summer and winter, with the museums and shops of the historic town of Taos only 25 min away there are plenty of activities for all. This house has all the benefits of being in the ski valley, yet is secluded from the condos and noise of the village. Your own private high mountain retreat.

In the summer this home has direct access to just under 30 miles of the most challenging single track mountain biking in the country, with trails all the way to the top of Bull of the Woods mountain, above 12,000 feet. Walk directly out the door for a hike on the Williams lake trail to summit Wheeler peak, the highest mountain in New Mexico. Please note, this property is only accessed by a 4 WD vehicle in the winter. This the perfect high altitude rocky mountain retreat.

Keywords: Downhill walk to and from different trails. One of the few houses near upper lift at Taos. Less than one half mile below the Bavarian.Ski. Walk to trails.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are local New Mexico residents who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and activities of the souther rocky mountains. Feel free to ask about the many wonderful and fun things there are to do in the area.

Why the Owner Chose Taos Ski Valley, NM, USA:
Taos Ski Valley has some of the most challenging and rewarding skiing and mountain biking available. With the additional hiking, fishing, rafting, museums, shopping and endless other activities in this unique part of the world, there is plenty of recreation for the whole family. We bought this property because we love Taos, yet the home is secluded high in the mountains for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of town. You get the feeling that you are high in a secluded mountain lodge, yet it is a short drive on a well maintained road to town. If you love recreation in the mountains, or the unique culture, shopping or many galleries of the the Taos area, you will love this home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is high above the hustle and bustle of the new village with pristine mountain views and quite mountain living.
