This is the #1 Rated VRBO in Taos Ski Valley! Situated at over 10,000ft and just a short walk from the base of Chairlift 4, the Alpenglow Chalet is waiting to become your family's favorite getaway. One of the newest accommodations in Taos Ski Valley, this vacation property offers *unmatched* views of Kachina Peak and the Sangre de Cristo mountains surrounding the ski area. Thanks to its height in the valley, sunrise and sunset paints a special glow on the mountains, hence the name 'Alpenglow Chalet'.
This property has all the extra touches to make your vacation memorable. Downstairs it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus plenty of storage for your outdoor gear. Heated tile floors take the edge off the brisk mountain temperatures and the fireplace in the middle of the floor-to-ceiling windows is the perfect setting for a night of stories, cards, and laughs. Also, enjoy the large, flat screen TV above the fire for movies or satellite TV. The kitchen is open and has plenty of counter space for cooking big meals for the large groups that fill our condo. Upstairs, you'll find comfortable couches, a TV for DVDs, and dozens of movies and board games- it's perfect for the kids or young adults. Additionally, there is one queen, one standard, and three twin bunks in this spacious loft area.
If you don't feel like cooking, you're in luck! The highly-acclaimed Bavarian Restaurant is our neighbor. You will find delicious homemade German meals and the finest imported beers served in a beautiful and rustic Bavarian lodge. No need to drive, it's just down the trail!
In the summer, the Alpenglow Chalet is the perfect headquarters for all your outdoor adventures. Adjacent trails lead into protected Wilderness Areas and onto the picturesque Williams Lake. Towering above the condo is Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico, and a great place to hike. We also neighbor 'Northside', a collection of mountain bike and hiking trails for all skill levels.
During the winter, a short 5 minute walk takes you to the base of the Kachina lift, where you can skip the crowds by putting on your skis or snowboard starting your day on the fresh backside snow! The easy access to and from the condo means you can have a hot lunch in the well stocked kitchen, or sit on the deck and watch your family and friends ski the Kachina bowl and trails.
Roads are well maintained in the summer and plowed in the winter, however chains (available w/ most car rentals) or a 4x4/AWD is strongly recommended in the winter.

This wonderful property is surrounded on all sides by mountains and pristine forest. Hike 1hr to Williams Lake. Go another hour or two up and reach New Mexico's highest point, the top of Wheeler Peak at over 13,000ft. Frisbee Golf, Mountaineering, Trail Running, Relaxing, and Mountain Biking abound in the summer. In the winter, well, it's all about SKIING and SNOWBOARDING on Taos Ski Valley's famous slopes that are waiting for you right outside the window! Want to leave your car and do some walking? The Bavarian Restaurant/Lodge is just a 5min walk through the forest. Try their house-made German food and top quality imported German beers. Listen to live music (both summer and winter) outside on their porch. There is plenty to do here, whether you want to be active in the outdoors or just relax inside while enjoying truly phenomenal views.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We met serving in the Air Force. Mark & Heather were married while stationed in England, where they shared a mutual friend, Rob. The three of us have traveled the world together and shared many amazing memories. Mark and Rob still serve in the Air Force and climb mountains together in a charity program. Mark and Heather have three kids that are quickly growing up to be amazing skiers and rock climbers. Rob recently married a beautiful woman from Amarillo, TX, Lesan, who loves skiing and hiking with their mountain-dog Callie.
Why the Owner Chose Taos Ski Valley, NM, USA:
We LOVE the mountains and that is why we bought this property. It is perfect for our families and we hope you are able to experience the stunning sunsets and unbeatable views. Each morning we wake up in the condo puts a huge smile on our faces! Give it a try- we're willing to bet you'll love it too. Since we are moving all over the nation/world, we wanted a place we could always meet at and call 'home' together. So, while stationed in Albuquerque, we purchased this beautiful property! Now stationed elsewhere in the nation, we still meet up there at least 2-3 times a year in order to share more good times in the mountains and keep involved in our friends' and families' lives.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
WE HAVE A HEATED SINGLE GARAGE WITH SKI/SNOWBOARD RACKS FOR GUEST USE! Plus, we love how close it is to Chairlift 4 AND the Bavarian. It gives us time to have a leisurely breakfast before walking w/ the kids to the chair lift area. Plus, having a beer at the Bavarian is nice b/c we can just walk back to the condo and not ever worry about driving our entire vacation (once we reach the condo, of course). In the summer we like to enjoy our coffee on the deck, then head out for a hike along the creek (just a stones throw away) or get our discs out for the free frisbee golf course. At night we love to cook large meals and feed big crowds of friends and family, then gather around the fireplace for card games that last late into the night. If it's winter, we make sure to go out for at least one night of moon-lit skiing in the backcountry above Lake Williams. It's a magical experience. (But we don't recommend it unless you are an expert in backcountry travel)
