Owner info

Year Purchased: 1972

About the owner: The Edelweiss Chalet was part of the Edelweiss Hotel which we owned and operated since 1963! After 34 wonderful and most successful year in Hotel operation we retired and sold the Hotel - however I kept the Edelweiss Chalet. It was part of the hotel for all those years. I have lived in the Ski Valley for over 45 years now and still love it. The location of the house is perfect with access to the ski slopes and the village (short walk). Skiing and mountain sports are a big part of my life. I am very experienced in the ski industry and love what I am doing every time over again.

Why the Owner Chose Taos Ski Valley, NM, USA:
If you are a skier, beginner or ready for serious slopes, this is the perfect place to be. Walk out of the house and put on your skies - you are practically on the slope! Perfect in many other ways as a family vacation or reunion with other families, it all suites nicely. If you are a hiker, biker, or just lover of the outdoors, cool nature, clean air, forest and stream in front of your door - this is the place for you.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Breathe the healthy mountain air while you are relaxing or doing what you most want in nature! Touch Nature from your deck, smell the trees, feel the snow! Refresh and recharge!
