About the owner: We love the New Mexico outdoors, and skiing is our family activity in the winter.
Why the Owner Chose Taos Ski Valley, NM, USA:
The Village of Taos Ski Valley is a friendly mountain community that combines the best of American western wilderness with Austrian ski resort, with incredible access to winter and summer wilderness. This location is close to the center of the Village, with easy access to ski trails, yet in a very quiet and private setting away from ski valley traffic. Being directly across from the charming Rio Hondo creek offers year-round sounds of a mountain stream.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Taos Ski Valley is the premier ski destination in the west if you appreciate great snow, varied terrain including incredible steeps, while being immersed in the deep blue sunny skies of New Mexico. For the visitors who love art but not skiing, Taos and the nearby village of Arroyo Seco offer galleries and the historic Taos culture that seem a continent apart from the Austrian alpine setting of the ski valley, yet are only a short drive down the valley.
