About the property

2 Bedrooms + Huge Loft, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10-12, Mountain Views, Walk to Ski Lifts

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.

About Rob Marshall

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 Marshall purchased this condo in 2007

Why Rob Marshall chose Taos Ski Valley

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.

What makes this condo unique

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)

Guestbook comments from the owner

“WOW! Words cannot express how awesome this place is. Because it sits in front of forest land, you can see nothing but unbelievable views out the back with no civilization in sight. And out the front, from the deck, you can see the ski resort and the Kachina lift. The amenities are also unprecedented. The kitchen was fully equipped and we ate in almost every night. That gave us more time to enjoy our family, the roaring fire, the heated floors and the many games that were there. My husband taught our 4 year old nieces how to play poker and lost most of his money. The upstairs loft was the perfect commune for my Brother, Sister-in-Law, nieces and 3 month old nephew. They couldn't have been happier. As for Taos Ski Valley... absolutely unbelievable. The ski school was so awesome that my nieces were able to go up the "big people" lift on the last day. Also, I don't think we waited in a lift line the entire time we were there. Priceless memories were made. We are so grateful to our host for sharing this slice of heaven!”

Week Vacation In Taos Ski Valley at The Alpenglow

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was in the late fall of the year (late October) and targeted at some really quite, peaceful time to unwind from the daily hustle/bustle of everyday life. In short, the Condo and location "nailed it" for us.

To say the least, the Alpenglow Condo and the view off of the balcony was second to none (spectacularly amazing!!) and made our stay absolutely amazing. We were absolutely blown away with the view when we arrived. From what we could tell, there is not another facility in the Ski Valley that has even close to the view of the mountains that the Alpenglow provides.

The Condo itself was perfectly decorated to add the right atmosphere, it had all accommodations necessary to make the stay absolutely perfect! Upon arrival it was perfectly cleaned, so warm and inviting and the location nestled in the south end of the valley was excellent.

We began each day and ended it on the balcony taking in the breathtaking view offered "only by this place". It was an experience we will never forget and we hope to be a repeat customer in the future.

Thanks so much! Bob and Diann

Owner's Response: Bob & Diann, We're so VERY happy to hear your vacation was awesome and that our property "nailed it". Hurray! Who can ask for more than that?! The view is always changing as nature constantly rearranges her colors, foliage, rock formations, snow and general weather, so please come back and enjoy that great view some more! Cheers- Rob

Just Beautiful! Hope to return!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little getaway at Alpenglow. We were only here for a long weekend and hoped to spend our time hiking and relaxing, which is exactly what we accomplished. It was a perfect hiking spot with beauty everywhere. The condo had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. I have spent many vacations in Colorado but didn't realize how nice Taos Ski Valley really was. It is conveniently located to Taos and very close to the small artist community of Arroyo Seco. Honestly, we enjoyed being in this condo so much, we only made it to Taos one time to eat. The only recommendation I could make would be for the owners to invest in a new grill. I definitely would stay here again and hope to bring my children in the near future! Thanks so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Jan! I'm so happy you had a great stay this fall and that you were able to explore the natural beauty of the Ski Valley. You're right- once you're up among the high mountains, there is little draw to head back down into Taos proper. As for the grill, I agree, it's time we got a new one! The harsh winters take their toll on anything outside. Next time you come there will be a new one for ya'll to cook on! We hope to see you again soon. --Rob

the pictures dont do it justice this condo is in a perfect place to the ski valley

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, plenty of room for our family of 9, comfortable, well equipped and situated just below the ski lift. It is easily within walking distance to the Bavarian restaurant which has great food and beer and a short drive to the ski valley that has other places to shop and eat. The views from the condo are amazing, majestic!!! My family want to return next year and stay a little longer which we will do. This condo is perfect in a perfect place.

The Ski Valley continues to add amenities and activities, plus we offer a discount to returning guests. Hope to see you again in 2018! -Rob

Williams Lake shore via trail
Car: necessary

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.
