Property description

Location: Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico, USA (Top of the Ski Valley! Close to the Kachina Chair and the Bavarian) View Map

Accommodations: Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps family of 6 in comfort on real beds)

Brand new listing in January 2014!

Situated in a scenic location at just over 10,000ft, just a short walk from the Kachina ski lift and Phoenix lodge. Built in 2007, it is one of the newest accommodations in Taos Ski Valley. It has incredible views of the backside of the ski valley, Kachina Peak, and the surrounding Sangre de Cristo mountains. Thanks to it's position in the valley, the sunrise and sunset dramatically illuminates the peaks from the front porch and out the floor-to-ceiling windows. Wildlife abounds – including bighorn sheep, elk and bald eagles.

This property is spacious, comfortable, and has everything you need for a great vacation. The master bedroom is equipped with a king bed and Euro-topped mattress, and the master bath has a Jacuzzi tub. The 2nd bedroom is equipped to handle the family with two sets of bunks and (twin over twin and twin over full) and its own bathroom.
Heated floors take the edge off the brisk mountain temperatures, and the front balcony provides spectacular views of Taos Ski Valley and the surrounding 13,000+ peaks. The kitchen is open, well equipped, and has plenty of counter space for cooking big meals for the family.
You will also find plenty of storage for your outdoor gear, as well as a full-size washer and dryer (a rarity in most accommodation around here).

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 200 yards down the trail!

In the summer, the location is a perfect base 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 5-7 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! No driving, no parking! The easy access to and from the condo means you can have a hot lunch at home, or watch your family and friends ski the Kachina bowl and trails from the balcony. (Note – if you have very young children who are not yet skiing, this location requires a drive down to the ski school and may not be for you.)

Roads are well maintained in the summer and well plowed in the winter. However – we are at altitude in a heavy snow belt - a vehicle with either a 4x4 or AWD system is required from November through April (chains are an alternative). If you are flying-in, a 4WD vehicle can be reserved at most NM car rental agencies.
